Embedded guru and author Jack Ganssle’s latest “Embedded Muse” newsletter has a lot of good commentary on open source in embedded software projects:
I subscribe to very few newsletters, and Jack’s is one of them. I read every issue, it’s that good.
If you work in embedded software, or software of any kind, you should subscribe! (I don’t get anything if you subscribe, I just think it’s a worthwhile read.)
While I’m in fanboy mode, I’ll also recommend Jack’s other articles – click on a random one, you’ll probably learn something. My personal favorite is his guide to debouncing. He does some good experiments and then shows hardware and software solutions to the pesky debouncing problems we embedded folks face.
