Topic: Embedded C++ Development for the Game Boy Advance

Presenter: Richard Thomson

Date: Thursday, August 10, 2017

Time: 6:30:00 PM -

Location: Simmons Building @ DATC

In this presentation, I'll give an introduction to embedded development using C++. The target hardware environment will be the Nintendo Game Boy Advance. This hardware target is supported by an open source toolchains, a free emulator and a rich user community. Some of the topics to be covered include:
* How does the compilation environment differ for embedded systems?
* How do I unit test code written for embedded systems?
* How do C++'s lightweight abstractions help prevent us from making mistakes when targeting an embedded system?
