In this edition of the Embedded Insiders, Brandon and Rich wonder how the COVID-19 pandemic has been affecting the tech sector, both from a financial perspective and with regards to the productivity of engineers now working at home. Are those engineers executing, innovating, or just relaxing?
Later, Rich interviews Jean Labrosse, formerly a distinguished engineer and software architect at Silicon Labs. Jean shares some somewhat unpopular viewpoints on open source software in response to an Embedded Executives podcast with Gurjot Singh of Lynx Software Technologies in late April. Who can guarantee that open source software will work every time, all the time? And, what does that mean for open source in critical applications?
Finally, the Insiders circle back to highlight the Best-in-Show Winners from Embedded World 2020.
