Murielhttps://hackaday.io/murielgI have an arduino prototype that I want to slim down to only necessary components. Other than teaching myself EAGLE and designing a PCB, what else should I look for or learn to transition this product from arduino to something mass-producable?
4
DougDo you think learning C and an RTOS is needed versus the simple interface for Arduino?
5
DougBeagleBone has a JavaScript and Python Interface. Have you tried them. Useful?
6
DougIn your opinion, what differentiates an arduino prototype from a product?Is it volume, updates, packaging?
7
MrDeepCatWhen working with multiple Arduino I found several I2C conflicts, is there any kind of 'dedicated I2C Hub/hardware server' to simplify connections and to avoid clashes?
8
Taakohttps://hackaday.io/TaakoDo professional embedded systems developers use the libraries provided by vendors such as the STMCube/STL or TI's peripheral libraries and if they don't do they reimplement everything from the register level? I want to learn STM32 and/or MSP430 but i am overwhelmed by the amount that i have to learn to really "know" whats going on in the microprocessor. It almost seems like it would be impossible to use these at the register level to do something as complex as i2c or usb because of the timing requirements.
9
Taakohttps://hackaday.io/TaakoWhen getting started how do I know what i should and shouldn't be using so that i can say i am really learning instead of just using the provided vendor libraries? If i exclusively use the provided libraries then how is it at all different from arduino?
10
Taakohttps://hackaday.io/TaakoWhat are the best books/guides/resources for learning C programming techniques for STM32's or other embedded systems?Something with actual hands on projects and something which teaches various often used protocols and methodologies would be amazing
11
Taakohttps://hackaday.io/TaakoHow do you deal with all the various (oftentimes proprietary) toolchains for each different micro family?Have you heard of Platform.io and if so what are your thoughts?

What in your opionion is the most "Linux friendly" tool chain and uC line? I'm deeply married to linux and I am starting to move past arduinos. Should I stick with Atmel and avrdude?
13
Joshhttps://hackaday.io/jhlIs Moore's Law slowing down or speeding up in the embedded systems world? How does this affect chipset selection?
14
TorHow do you avoid analysis paralysis when selecting a new uC family for a project. Do you prefer to move between models and stay within a family? When is it time to change/upgrade?
15
Terrencehttps://hackaday.io/maclean.atFavorite Hardware and Toolchain?
16
EdgarIs using MBED advisable for production projects? it keeps changing all the time.
17
mrseekerI was one of the organizers of SHA2017, and one of the biggest costs we had for our badge was the chip itself. If you are designing something that sells 5000+ items in a rather rapid pace, what do you have to consider when choosing the right chip?
Think a kickstarter that goes haywire and you need to rethink that "expensive" part with something that costs less in bulk.
18
Steve Silverhttps://hackaday.io/VoiceHatfor short run PCB assembly who do you like to use?
19
Lalkshttps://hackaday.io/LalksIs there any programming language that will be better than C for embedded systems in a near future ? If yes, what would it be ?

How necessary is the certification/testing for DIY Electronics Embedded Boards with Li-ion battery and BLE modules for low volume sales (100-1000 units)? Some suggested self checks or design guidelines resources?If they are not in finished goods category and can be considered as DIY kits. FCC, Registration with Bluetooth SIG, CE? DO all boards with BLE/WiFi like Adafruit Feather are FCC/CE certified?
21
EdgarWhere to look for a job as Embedded Systems Engineer?
22
Lucas https://hackaday.io/hacker/24805-lucas-rangit-magasweranHow does an Embedded Systems Engineer get IoT on their resume? Ot is it just the same thing and we should be able to use them interchangeably?
23
MorganHow are the whales?!?
24
Lucas StackExchange is showing a lot of growth with Rust. Is it worth learning and using in production?
25
Lalkshttps://hackaday.io/LalksWhat kind of missions does have an embedded systems engineer in the industry ?
26
Lucas Does anyone have experience shipping a product using Zypher, the RTOS from Intel/WindRiver? There's a lot of hype and push from Intel to use it but I didn't find it easy to get working on a Curie. I'm wondering if anyone has actually used this in a product.
27
Lucas What is the difference with being an Embedded Software Engineer consultant vs. working at a company full-time?
28
mrseekerWhat is the best chip for IoT purposes, when you want to have a lot of them with a fixed budget? What would be the tradeoff?
29
darrylnHow to find paying clients?
30
Lalkshttps://hackaday.io/LalksWas making your company a good idea ? How about the competition ?
31
Lucas How do you learn how to take a reference design (dev kit) and make a custom PCB with it? Is there a good resource that can teach just enough to get it done quickly, since you're just "copy pasting"?
32
33
mrseekerJavascript, C++ or ASM?
34
FoalyYou said that HALs sometimes have bugs. How do you deal with that? Fix the bug inside the HAL? Rewrite the function in user space? Ask the company for a fix even though they sometimes thank you but never actually take care of it?
35
Terrencehttps://hackaday.io/maclean.atPlans for a new rev of your book or is it good as is?
36
shapircCan you recommend any good starting points (books, blogs, or other) for someone who is competent in embedded C and wants to become familiar C++?
37
mrseekerWhat was your totally overkilled chip you ever had to program for?mine was an intel edison chip that i could use for testing.
38
39
LucasIs starting a consulting service that takes Arduino prototypes to production a viable business?
40
Boian Mitovhttps://hackaday.io/mitovWhat are you working on now?
41
Audi McAvoyhttps://hackaday.io/AudiI've asked this before, but I think your answer is good for this crowd. As an independent consultant, how do I get peer review?
