Jump Starting Code Development to Minimize Software Bugs

Jacob Beningo  (President, Beningo Embedded Group)

Location: 108

Date: Wednesday, May 15

Time: 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Track: ESC Boston, Track E: Focus on Fundamentals, ESC Boston, Track B: Embedded Software Design & Verification

Vault Recording: TBD

Debugging an embedded system is one of the most time consuming and expensive activities that embedded software developers engage in. Survey results show that the average team can spend as much as 40% of a development cycle debugging their software! Developers can easily prevent, detect and eliminate bugs to dramatically decrease the time they spend debugging their embedded system. In this session, we are going to examine several techniques such as assertions, code reviews and tracing that can be used to quickly detect bugs. We will develop a robust process that attendees can follow and implement to decrease the time they spend debugging and spend more time innovating.


Key Take-A-Ways:
- A code debugging process
- How to detect bugs when they occur using assertions
- Leveraging trace technology to detect bugs
- Tools necessary to debug a system
- How to create a robust code review process
- Leverage code analysis tools to detect potential bugs and pain points
- Debugging best practices

Intended Audience

Developers looking to decrease the amount of time they spend debugging their embedded systems.
