Patterns in the Machine
Discover how to apply software engineering patterns to develop more robust firmware faster than traditional embedded development approaches. In the authors' experience, traditional embedded software projects tend towards monolithic applications that are optimized for their target hardware platforms. This leads to software that is fragile in terms of extensibility and difficult to test without fully integrated software and hardware. Patterns in the Machine focuses on creating loosely coupled implementations that embrace both change and testability.
This book illustrates how implementing continuous integration, automated unit testing, platform-independent code, and other best practices that are not typically implemented in the embedded systems world is not just feasible but also practical for today's embedded projects.
After reading this book, you will have a better idea of how to structure your embedded software projects. You will recognize that while writing unit tests, creating ...
