View Resource The Basics of Programming Embedded Processors: Part 6

Because embedded systems must perform functions in real time, we often need to know how fast a program runs. The techniques we use to analyze program execution time are also helpful in analyzing properties such as power consumption. In this part in the series, we study how to analyze programs to estimate their run times. We also examine how to optimize programs to improve their execution times;...

View Resource Extreme Programming: A Gentle Introduction

Extreme programming (XP) is basically a methodology of software development that maximizes programming efficiency. It can be used in any project by almost anyone, but is perhaps best suited for "small groups of programmers." This site offers a very thorough overview of the techniques involved in XP, beginning with a general introduction and explaining what it is and why it is beneficial. Then,...

View Resource C++ In Action

The author of C++ In Action and its online counterpart wrote the book with the intention of transcending the bare-bones essentials of the programming language and expanding into the techniques that make an effective code writer. Three main chapters cover the C++ language and structure, programming techniques, and the software project process; another chapter on Windows techniques is provided as...

View Resource The Basics of Programming Embedded Processors: Part 8

Power consumption is a particularly important design metric for battery-powered systems because the battery has a very limited lifetime. However, power consumption is increasingly important in systems that run off the power grid. Fast chips run hot, and controlling power consumption is an important element of increasing reliability and reducing system cost. How much control do we have over power...

View Resource MIT OpenCourseWare: Introduction to Computer Science and Programming

For those individuals who have yet to experience one of MIT's OpenCourseWare offerings, this is a great place to start. This site provides access to the spring 2011 version of Professor John Guttag's popular "Introduction to Computer Science and Programming." This course is aimed at students with "little or no programming experience," and its goal is to help students feel "justifiably confident...
