software quality preview videos
The videos below are shorter, condensed previews of the longer tutorials in our library. Here are the current topics covered in the Just a Minute series.
- Embedded Software Quality and Security: A short video on why embedded software security, safety, and quality matters, and what you can do about it.
- Peer Reviews: An introduction on a practice that will save you time and money. Seriously, you should be doing Peer Reviews.
- Avoid Stack Overflow: Get some tips on how to manage your stack and ensure that you don't get blindsided.
- Safety Overview: A brief introduction on software safety topics, including safety principles and safety culture.
- Creating Dependable Software: Covers the basics of computer dependability, including reliability, availability, and using parallel redundancy to improve dependability.
- Critical Systems: covers critical systems, including the safety integrity level (SIL) approach to making systems safe.
- Safety Planning: what goes into a safety plan for creating a safety critical embedded system.
- Safety Requirements: how to create good safety requirements and how to use a doer/checker architectural pattern to make the safety critical portions of your system simple.
- Single Point of Failure: A preview of a tutorial that covers how to identify and avoid single points of failure in mission-critical systems.
- Redundancy Management for Critical Systems: An introduction to a tutorial that covers the various redundancy mechanisms that are useful in creating a safety-critical (or mission-critical) system.
- Critical Systems Isolation: Touches on techniques on how to achieve isolation between different levels of criticality (i.e., mixed-SIL isolation) in a safety critical system.
- Safety Architecture Patterns: explains a variety of patterns for safety critical embedded systems.
Creating Maintainable Code
- Dealing with Spaghetti Code: Complexity happens, and managing it is a challenge. This preview gives a brief idea on what how to measure and how to prevent excessive complexity.
- Human Readability: Best practices for making sure that the next developer (or "future you") can understand and maintain the code that you've written.
