Michael Barr, the author of O'Reilly's most recent release, Programming Embedded Systems in C and C++ relied on years of experience as an embedded system programmer to create a hands-on, no-nonsense guide-carefully designed to provide valuable information for those with some programming experience and familiarity with C or C. "I have tried to boil the subject down to its essence and present only those things that programmers definitely need to know" said Barr. "Embedded systems programming can take years to master, but one common denominator in almost all embedded software development is the use of C and C++. Programming Embedded Systems in C and C++ shows how to use C and C++ most effectively, and gives detailed explanations and source code solutions for common embedded software problems."
Programming Embedded Systems in C and C++ covers:
"This lively and readable book is the perfect introduction for those venturing into embedded systems software development for the first time. It provides, in one place all the important topics necessary to orient programmers to the embedded development process."-Lindsey Vereen, Editor-In Chief, Embedded Systems Programming
Michael earned B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Maryland. He has spent most of his career so far developing embedded software, device drivers, and real-time operating systems. Michael also enjoys writing and teaching and looks forward to starting his next book; he is currently considering several ideas, including at least one novel.
