One out of a great series of articles on H-bridge design and control: http://www.modularcircuits.com/blog/articles/h-bridge-secrets/h-bridge-control/

The first project I'm using C++11 on is a microcontroller. Because that's how I roll.

The company I work for is hiring roboticists and software engineers: http://lists.ros.org/pipermail/ros-users/2015-May/069432.html

I'm shopping for electronics lab equipment, and all of the new equipment comes with web interfaces and iPad apps. Even the power supplies. Kids these days are so spoiled.

Interesting talk on choosing the right data structures in C++: CppCon 2014: Chandler Carruth "Efficiency with Algorithms, Performance with Data Structures" . The bottom line is that std::list and std::map are slow.

Makes me wonder if I should go off and implement my own associative data structure.

Note to self: don't try to run ROS on a big-endian machine.

New favorite C++ toy: boost::program_options.

It makes parsing command-line arguments sane in C++
