Embedded Experts to Discuss "Top 10 Bug-Killing Embedded Coding Standard Rules"

GAITHERSBURG, Md., May 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Barr Group, a global leader in the safety and security of embedded systems, announced today that CTO Michael Barr and Principal Engineer Dan Smith will host an upcoming free embedded software webinar entitled Top Ten Bug-Killing Embedded Coding Standard Rules.

The 60-minute webinar on June 3rd, 2014 at 1PM EDT will focus on the quality improvements that embedded software development teams can gain by adherence to a coding standard.

"Following a coding standard specifically designed for embedded software is one of the best ways that development teams can reduce software bugs in embedded systems," said Barr, a noted industry expert and former adjunct professor at the University of Maryland. "Barr Group's webinar will discuss the many sources of safety and security flaws in embedded software for the Internet of Things and provide important tips for organizations wanting to create a coding standard."

"Certain software bugs are created by the original developers, and other bugs result from misunderstandings by those who later maintain and extend the software code," said Smith, commenting on the sources of bugs in embedded software. "No matter the cause of software bugs, embedded software teams that adopt and enforce a coding standard are much more likely to reduce the quantity and severity of software bugs."
