Overview:
It is cheaper and easier to prevent bugs from creeping into code than it is to find and kill them after they have entered. A key strategy in the fight against bugs is to write code in which the compiler, linker, or a static analysis tool can detect bugs automatically – i.e., before the code is allowed to execute. Join us to learn about simple practical steps you or your development team can take to keep bugs out of embedded software written in C or C++.


Attend this webinar to learn:

  • Ten simple coding rules to keep bugs out of embedded software
  • How to increase the readability and portability of source code
  • The dark corners of the ISO “standard” C programming language
  • A basic understanding of the role of MISRA-C and MISRA-C++
  • How to use static analysis tools to enforce coding standards
