C Courses offered by Doulos
  • C for Real-Time Developers - Learning the C programming language is one thing, but learning to use it effectively and appropriately in a real-time embedded environment is another. For many programmers, these skills are learnt the hard way, through trial and error on the job. This course addresses this issue by not only teaching the C programming language, but through emphasizing the pragmatic use of C in a real-time environment. This is achieved through both lecture and direct hands-on experience.
  • Advanced C Programming - Many engineers work with the C programming language every day for real-time embedded development. However some hit a plateau and never feel comfortable with certain aspects of the language. This course aims to move people off that plateau and give them a fuller appreciation of the more advanced aspects of the language. Because of the requirements for programming real-time embedded systems, this course goes beyond just addressing the language issues and explores compile, link and run-time issues. In addition it covers interrupts and multi-tasking areas specific to C. As part of the course, approximately 50% of the time is given over to writing code for a real target.
  • C++ for Embedded Developers - This course introduces the C++ language for use on realtime and embedded applications. The first part of the course focuses on the language itself, highlighting areas of concern for real-time and embedded development. The latter part covers the application of C++ to real-time systems including interrupt handling and concurrency issues. If a C++ course does not cover these fundamental issues you may find you still have a lot to learn after the training. Attendees perform hands on embedded programming, on target hardware, during course practicals. Approximately 50% of the course is given over to practical work.
  • Advanced C++ for Embedded Systems - A high proportion of programmers using C++ for embedded development have either been unable or have chosen not to use certain features of C++ due to fear of bloated, slow code with poor performance. This course addresses the “fear, uncertainty and doubt” of using full C++. Specifically the course deals with: performance and memory considerations of polymorphic functions, exceptions and templates. In addition, complete coverage of the Standard Library, including the STL, are covered, again with the specifics of performance and memory models. Fifty percent of the course is spent on practical work and the course includes the use of target hardware.
  • Design Patterns in C++ for Embedded Systems - Everyone seems to be talking about design patterns these days. This course is designed to both show you what they are and how they can be applied to real-time C++ embedded systems, giving practical, hands-on experience with the core design patterns, uniquely addressing their suitability to a non-PC programming environment.
