About John Coyne's Embedded Blog

 

So why yet another blog in the embedded world, you ask? well - let's see - I could do it in the form of a top ten list, but that would mean we'd be here awhile. so I'll make it short - there are lots of blogs out there by developers, for developers. These blogs go deep sometimes into the world of code - my primary role is to support the distributor engineers for Microsoft, and most aren't developers. so suffice it to say a lot of the other blog content tends to go above and beyond what these folks need to be effective in their jobs. so my blog is here to point things out, albeit sometimes from other blogs, that are relevant to our distributors. Hope you enjoy! Drop a line sometime.
