Elecia White


Date: Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Speaker: Elecia White, embedded software consultant, and author of O’Reilly’s Making Embedded Systems

Time: 6:30 PM (PT) Networking/Refreshments,
7:00 PM Presentation.

Location: Cadence / Bldg 10,
2655 Seely Ave, San Jose, CA (map)


Embedded software is not like other software; working close to the hardware has a special set of challenges. Elecia will provide an overview of the more difficult areas in embedded software including processor profiling, map files, bootloaders, and debugging remotely. This is framed as a project that starts with off the shelf dev boards using sample software and evolves into custom hardware running optimized software.
