What You DON’T Know Can Hurt You: What you NEED to know about MISRA C:2012

Dear all,

Greetings for the day !!!!

If you’re developing safety-critical applications, you can’t afford to take chances. But commercial pressures don’t go away just because you’re diligent. The latest version of the MISRA standard lets you take advantage of more C features while helping you mitigate risk for safety-critical automotive, medical, industrial or mil/aero applications.
Anyone developing software with the potential to put lives at risk has an obligation to take every reasonable step to ensure that the work is sound. Adhering to standards is one key step in that process, and MISRA is the internationally recognised foundation for best coding practises. But features of the language that are designed to increase application performance, developer productivity and implementation flexibility are often just the features that the standard disallows. MISRA C:2012 changes the game.
Many of the Aerospace companies use MISRA Coding Guidlines and Henceforth I'm sure Avionics students would like to know more about new standard’s release.  
Following immediately on the heels of the new standard’s release, Chris Tapp, chairman of the MISRA C++ Committee, member of the MISRA C Working Group and one of the authors of MISRA C:2012, will tell you what you need to know:
What will you learn?

  • How the new standard can help you make better decisions about the use of popular programming language features
  • How MISRA C:2012 provides backwards compatibility to protect legacy code
  • How the introduction of “decidable and undecideable” proscriptive rules will help focus your test efforts
  • The effect of introducing support for C99 on the MISRA C:2012 standard

    Cheers !!!!

    11 Rules of Bill Gates that you will not learn in school

    Got an email from a Friend. Instantly liked it and it deserves a post here for some of the rules. Thanks Ajay!

    Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about eleven (11) things they did not and will not learn in school.

    Rule 1 : Life is not fair - get used to it!

    Rule 2 : The world doesn't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

    Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

    Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss

    Rule 5 : Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: They called it opportunity.

    Rule 6 : If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

    Rule 7 : Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were: So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room..

    Rule 8 : Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. *This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

    Rule 9 : Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. *Do that on your own time.

    Rule 10 : Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

    Rule 11 : Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

    Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them: A desire, a dream, and a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, and they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill

    AeSI students and graduates and organizing the tour to aero India show!

    Organizing the tour to aero India show for aesi students taught me two things about aesi students.

    Most need the communication skills of talking over phones. In this age, when phone is the first piece of device through which a prospective employer/client will contact you. Thankfully most of the students I contacted were good in this but I found some who were zero. I got to one Mr A for whom I had to cut the phone in the middle of the call or I would have started abusing him on the phone. He was worse than bad.

    His voice and tone of his language was total gawar, to use an Hindi term. And if I had to picture him by the tone of his voice, he definitely was Raghu of MTV roadies. Rude. Obnoxious.

    And the second thing that I found was email isn't the most effective means of communication. Speaking directly is. No the second thing that I found was that initiative pays. A small act rewards.

    Because of the limited number of passes, we couldn't send everyone who registered for the event. We short listed 10 and then added 15 more as wait listed candidates. By the way we received close to 90 registration. Thanks for your interest.

    But then how initiative payed a role in all this. When I was calling the people in the wait list, some declined and some declined giving a reason for not going to make it. And some took the initiative of sending an SMS to me about there details. This not only helped me in keeping track of them, but there initiative planted their name and number on my mobile and mind. So when any of the selected/ wait listed person declined, guess who got a call from me.

    So these were the two lessons I wanted to share with you all.

    Be professional while talking over the phone and take initiative. You never know when something connects to something. When a small act like sending an SMS ripples back.

    So what's next, if you are one of the guys who has got the opportunity to be part of the aero India show through Aesiaa, please let us know how you enjoyed it. What we did good and what can be improved. And yes share your photos, we might add to the newsletter.

    Anyways. I enjoyed organizing this and talking with so many young students and minds. Hope to meet you soon.
