3. Bare Metal C++: A Practical Guide¶
If you what to be an embedded coding champ, you should really read Alex Robenko’s book: Practical Guide to Bare Metal C++ (and I mean: really!)
Alex’ book goes through very interesting topics of getting C++ runnning on embedded devices. It covers important shortcomings and advantages of C++ in an embedded environment.
If you know C++ you might want to use Exceptions and RTTI features, before you do: Read the book! In contrast, if you do not know C++ you might (will) make mistakes that can take hours to recover from. Again: Read the book!
Here is a short list of most interesting chapters of the book:
- Dynamic Memory Allocation
- Removing Standard library
- Static objects
- Abstract classes
- Event loops
As a Mono developer you will face most of these topics.
