An Unofficial Study-Guide for the Book:
Hands-On RTOS with Microcontrollers
The book Hands-On
RTOS with Microcontrollers, by Brian Amos, is very good overall.
However, it has a number of errors, code bugs and unclear points. There are also
bugs in the system-apps used, and the book has omitted some information needed
to use the apps. When running the book's code, diagnosing and fixing these
problems can be time-consuming and require extra skills.
This study-guide provides corrections and clarifications for the book, and additional needed information. Presently, the study-guide covers the first 3/4 of the book, and the remainder should be completed by March 2022.
Corrections, feedback and discussion are most welcomed. Each web-page has a comments section.
About the study-guide's author: I'm new to embedded-systems, but I have many years of related experience, e.g., in operating-systems development and university teaching.
