Modern Embedded Software Needs Modern C++ Programming

As the chair of SG14 Embedded, I like to give an update of what we have done for embedded. But this talk is much more than that. It will describe our group's collective experience in what is Embedded which has come from Automotive, games, Medical, Finance and many others. The definition is surprisingly wide and covers hard- and soft-real time, wide span of seriousness, hardware, replication, response time, and supported software. For that matter, who are the Embedded programmers? I will tie this back to the two pillars of C++: a direct map to hardware and zero overhead. I will argue why we should use C++, some of the bad reasons for note using C++, and identify 2 of the biggest problems people have complained about moving to C++. Understanding that Embedded compilers may not be up to the latest standard, we plan to separate Modern C++ into 3 Ages so that we can have people to change their code with varying levels of Embedded C++ compiler support. Finally, I will show some examples of how to change from C to C++ as one of the most common case in the Embedded community. I will show some of the common c++ features for each of several cases which includes Adopting to C++ in one shot, and gradual adoption for various sizes of systems. These are some of the common cases when people need to convert to C++ from some other language in the Embedded domain. We hope this overview and deep dive at the same time will give people a better appreciation and realistic perspective of what it takes to move to Modern C++ for Embedded systems.

Learning C: Input and Output and Two Program Templates

Before I get too deep into C, I need to show you how to get data into and out of your programs. Using assignment for data gets old after a while and you want to be able to have users enter their own data. And you definitely need to be able to see what happens to your data in a program so learning how to display data to the screen is important and necessary.

Besides demonstrating how to perform input and output in C, I will also be demonstrating two templates that are related to those topics — Prompt, Then Read and Input, Process, Output (IPO). The IPO template, in particular, is important because practically every C program you write will use this template.

When I talk about input and output in C, I’ll use the terms standard input and standard output. These terms refer to the default input and output devices on your computer. The standard input device is the keyboard. The standard output device is the computer’s monitor or screen. I will only use the terms input and output and when I use those terms I’m referring to standard input and standard output. If I want to refer to a different device for input and/or output, I’ll use the specific term for that device.

WASI Development Toolchain for C/C++

We realized that compiling already existing C/C++ projects to WASI was much more challenging than we expected. This is because of two main reasons:

  1. It’s not trivial to install and use the WASI SDK
  2. It’s quite hard to port existing projects to WASI as it requires a tighter integration with all configuration and make tools

Inspired by these challenges we have been working non-stop on improving the tooling so it’s easier for anyone to use and adopt WebAssembly and WASI!

C programming for Beginners | Learn C Programming | C Language

C Language is an evergreen language and is used widely across different industries, This C programming is a must for students and working professionals to become a great Software Engineer especially when they are working in Software Development Domain. Great Learning brings you this live session on “Introduction to C”. In this live session, we will be covering major concepts in C Programming such as Different Variables, Different Data Types that are being used, its Operators, Flow control statements, Structure, and lot more.

What Employers Exactly Look for in a C/C++ Job Description

Nine times out of ten, you will come across a job ad that lists C/C++ as a skill requirement.

No matter the company, the job title, or the salary, you will likely find that the job description lists C/C++ as a required skill. Better yet, they want you to have 10+ years of experience using these technologies.

Why are these two languages from the 70s and 80s required for modern-day software developer positions?

Some will joke and say it’s because the employers are looking for candidates over the age of 50. Others will say it’s because the HR hiring managers have a lukewarm IQ that led them to copy and paste whatever Google listed as popular programming languages.

The bottom line is that anyone at any level in their software development career will come across this requirement for any job under the sun, be it as a software engineer, web developer, game programmer, or app developer. With so many different companies looking for this skill for any number of positions, it begs the question: what are recruiters actually looking for when they list C/C++ in a job description?

At this point, it’s pure speculation as to what recruiters really want. However, a few good explanations can help future software developers wisely navigate the omnipresent C/C++ requirement.

Employers Are Looking for You To Fill Any Number of Roles Within a Company.

Having an understanding of C and C++ allows you to fill any number of roles within a company.

Employers will often include C/C++ as a skill requirement as part of a broad job description to find candidates who could fulfill any number of positions or job requirements under the software developer umbrella. Often, employers are looking for someone who can do any of the following:

  • Someone who can work with systems administration tasks.
  • Someone who can maintain existing C/C++ code.
  • Someone who can do heavy academia-related coding work.
  • Someone who can be a game developer.
  • Someone who can work with Android NDK apps.
  • Someone very comfortable with memory management.

All of the tasks above can be done using more modern programming languages, yet are often taken over or completed using C or C++. C and C++, while ancient languages in terms of the speed at which technology modernizes, are still relevant for many different tasks that you may come across as a developer.

Object Oriented Programming in C++ | C++ OOPs Concepts | Learn Object Oriented C++

C++ is general purpose, compiled, object-oriented programming language and its concepts served as the basis for several other languages such as Java, Python, Ruby, Perl etc.

The goal of this course is to provide you with a working knowledge of C++. We’ll start with the basics, including syntax, operators, loops, and functions. This Course will explain you how to use data structures and create your own Functions. This Course will show you the details of the powerful object and template systems so you can create useful classes and objects.
