We plan on covering a lot of ground in this dynamic multipart content (DMC) series on embedded programming. This will include new articles as well as links into our archives. C and C++ will be one of the primary focuses of this series, because they remain a mainstay for embedded development. However, we will cover other languages and issues as well, so stay tuned.
Electronic Design’s Embedded Revolution survey reinforced the view of C and C++ dominance. Get some feedback from those involved in the development of popular embedded-programming languages.
Bjarne Stroustrup created C++, one of the most popular embedded programming languages. He is still working on the latest revisions of the C++ standard.
Brian Kernighan is a teacher, writer and developer. He authored “The C Programming Language” with Dennis Ritchie, the C bible.
Bjarne Stroustrup talks about C++ before his Q&A at the Google+ C++ Community at that time. We had a chance to ask a few questions first.
