Jack Ganssle has been forming the careers of embedded engineers for 20+ years. He has done this with four books, over 500 articles, a weekly column, and continuous lecturing. Technology moves fast and since the first edition of this best-selling classic much has changed. The new edition will reflect the author's new and ever evolving philosophy in the face of new technology and realities. Now more than ever an overarching philosophy of development is needed before just sitting down to build an application. Practicing embedded engineers will find that Jack provides a high-level strategic plan of attack to the often times chaotic and ad hoc design and development process. He helps frame and solve the issues an engineer confronts with real-time code and applications, hardware and software coexistences, and streamlines detail management. CONTENTS: Chapter 1 - Introduction Chapter 2 – The Project Chapter 3 – The Code Chapter 4 – Real Time Chapter 5 – The Real World Chapter 6 – Disciplined Development Appendix A – A Firmware Standard Appendix B - A Simple Drawing System Appendix C – A Boss’s Guide to Process *Authored by Jack Ganssle, Tech Editor of Embedded Systems Programming and weekly column on embedded.com *Keep schedules in check as projects and codes grow by taking time to understand the project beforehand *Understand how cost/benefit coexists with design and development

Embedded systems are products such as microwave ovens, cars, and toys that rely on an internal microprocessor. This book is oriented toward the design engineer or programmer who writes the computer code for such a system. There are a number of problems specific to the embedded systems designer, and this book addresses them and offers practical solutions. Offers cookbook routines, algorithms, and design techniques Includes tips for handling debugging management and testing Explores the philosophy of tightly coupling software and hardware in programming and developing an embedded system Provides one of the few coherent references on this subject

Wien wartet auf Dich!// - "Peopleware" in deutscher Übersetzung - Der Klassiker in der dritten Auflage mit sechs neuen Kapiteln - Viele Tipps, wie Produkte mehr Qualität erhalten und formale Vorgehensweisen aufgelockert werden - Hilfreiche Empfehlungen, wie man Teams pflegt, die gesund und produktiv sein sollen Nur wenige Computerbücher haben eine so tiefgreifende Wirkung auf das Software-Management wie „Peopleware“: Denn in diesem langjährigen Bestseller wird ganz klar dargestellt, dass die wesentlichen Probleme in der Software-Entwicklung nicht technischer, sondern menschlicher Natur sind – und das sind nur selten triviale Probleme! Aber wenn Sie sie lösen, maximieren Sie die Erfolgschancen Ihrer Projekte Für diese dritte Auflage haben die Autoren sechs neue Kapitel geschrieben und andere überarbeitet, um sie auf den Stand der heutigen Herausforderungen zu bringen. So behandelt das Buch zum Beispiel Management-Pathologien, die bislang nicht als Pathologien wahrgenommen wurden. Auch eine neue Kultur für Meetings wird angesprochen oder hybride Teams, die aus Mitarbeitern zusammengestellt werden, die aus altersmäßig scheinbar nicht kompatiblen Generationen stammen. Und die Autoren diskutieren Hilfsmittel, die sich in Projekten eher wie Anker statt wie Propeller anfühlen. Jeder, der Software-Teams oder Software-Organisationen managen muss, wird in diesem Buch unschätzbare Hinweise für die tägliche Arbeit finden.
