Well that didn’t go too badly. General course overview and a probably over-long “what is an embedded system” lecture. No-one overtly fell asleep at any rate. And everyone enjoyed the videos of the explosions.
So what the heck, enjoy – Ariane 5 Flight 501. An example of what can happen with unsafe datatype casting 😀
Next talks are on the hardware used in embedded systems, starting with the microprocessors and microcontrollers.
