Here is a easy way to simulate executing of microcontroller firmware on the PC. Can be used for understanding complex inputs and behaviors, as well as automated testing. http://www.jonnor.com/2017/03/host-based-simulation-for-embedded-systems

That the software has to run on a microcontroller is no reason to not have good tools for developing. On the contrary, embedded systems are usually harder to grok than PC software, and benefit more from things like simulation. Here is one way of doing it:
Nice story on building understandable Arduino systems with data-driven testing and simulation from +Jon Nordby

Embedded software can be hard to understand. Writing the code so it can execute also on the host and perform simulations can help. Example case of a MIDI drum trigger using capacitive touch sensors:

If it's not tested, its broken! fbp-spec allows testing any Flow-based-programming runtime, from webapps to microcontrollers.

Flow-based & dataflow programming get-together at FOSDEM!
Come to chat about FBP and dataflow programming! We'll be there representing NoFlo, MicroFlo, and MsgFlo. We could meet at the AW building and head for food or drinks afterwards
