Cloud-based continuous integration /klaʊd beɪst kənˈtɪnjʊəs ɪntɪˈɡreɪʃ(ə)n/
a software development practice that pretty much nobody would associate with microcontrollers …
I found myself last month representing Linaro at the Zephyr booth on the demo area floor in the Maritim Hotel in Berlin for ELC-E. I had a rather unusual microcontroller demo.
Microcontroller demos often tend to be a product prototype running an RTOS, often extended to sending data to a cloud-based application and/or to a mobile device. There were certainly some very cool microcontroller demos on the Zephyr booth at ELC. In our Zephyr demo we wanted to show how open the source code, tooling, and configuration could be, and how transparent collaboration could flow from the engineering behind the deeply embedded RTOS code.
