Money is just a way to keep score. The best people in any field are motivated by passion. That becomes more true the higher the skill level gets. Eric S. Raymond
Trust me, it is my passion for teaching not the money. I got multiple job offer after leaving NxP and also partnership offer for education related business. I was even told to make courses beyond 25k INR only.
This year I realized that students are joining courses above 50k INR just to get a job. I strongly recommend students to get skills and there are multiple recruiters to arrange job. If job is the only criteria , no one will prepare for GATE/MS.
I had discussed the various methods to learn Embedded C in my earlier post How to Learn Embedded C Programming online
Embedded C is one of the key skill required to enter in the firmware job. I have seen many digital electronics background folks struggling with Embedded or normal C. I taught many such folks since 2018. Some of them not only learned C but also moved to next stage of competitive coding. I am sharing few tips to make it simpler for beginners.
Learning how to learn is life’s most important skill : Tony Buzan
1: Remember important ASCII numbers 0x20 (space) , 0x30 (next is 1), 0x40 (next is A), 0x60 (next is a)
2: Start writing 32 bit register values in the format 0xaaaa_bbbb
3: Use your digital skills to understand simple logical operators .
4: Try to understand overall C programming ecosystem and use your assembly skill
5: Test yourself on regular basis
6: You can even use this link without any formality of registration.
7: You can use KEIL Simulator to practice Embedded C concepts. We use this in both 8051 and ARM baremetal courses.
8: Go beyond 8051/AVR/ESP because majority of industry jobs are based on ARM architecture.
9: Purchase at least one ARM based STM32 platform
10: Start your journey now with a 90 day’s course from Embedkari.
