On Demand Webinar with JKI Engineer, François Normandin

Managing complexity is one of the most fundamental aspects of any software engineer’s job definition. Hardware Abstraction is a key concept to master in our quest for achieving such a goal. Join JKI engineer François Normandin in this 45-minute webinar as he goes through the process of designing and implementing an hardware abstraction layer for a mocked-up instrument. From theory to practice, you will define hardware abstraction in the context of an instrument’s product development cycle and apply those concepts with JKI State Machine Objects.

You’ll learn:

What is Hardware Abstraction

Duration: 45 minutes

What makes Hardware Abstraction Useful

How to create a simple Hardware Abstraction Layer

How a HAL can help you create maintainable and testable software

Level: Intermediate
