My chapter on FreeRTOS, the open source real-time operating system, has been officially published in The Architecture of Open Source Applications, Volume II!
You can buy it on Lulu.com here: The Architecture of Open Source Applications, Volume II, dead tree version
Or you can wait a week or two and find the complete text (of my chapter and all the others!) here for free: AOSA online
I’m very happy how it turned out; it was a lot more work than I expected, but it was worth it. Greg Wilson and Amy Brown edited the heck out of it, I would love to work with either (or both) of them again. Thanks to them for pulling the whole thing together! Thanks also to Richard Barry, the primary FreeRTOS developer, for his technical help.
I’m looking forward to reading the whole book myself; so far I’ve only read my chapter.
A few choice chapters that I’m particular looking forward to reading are:
- GDB, by Stan Shebs
- Git, by Susan Potter
- GPSD, by Eric Raymond
- Twisted, by Jessica McKellar
So check out the book, either online or in paperback, and enjoy!
