With the rise of low-cost platforms like the Arduino and growing interest in the Internet of Things (IoT), a new category of embedded developers is arising. Many of this new cadre are not coming from electronics or computer science backgrounds, but are forging their own approaches to development unbound by tradition or academic methods. Some are even learning to code not by study, but by watching others write code.Most of us who have been in the embedded industry for a substantial length of time, say five years or longer, came to it from a formal background in electronics or computer science. We learned the craft through a combination of academic training in theory coupled with hands-on experience in the field. We then shared our understanding with others by writing articles and books, giving conference presentations, and live mentoring.This new wave of non-traditional designers seems to have developed an alternative approach to exchanging knowledge, though. Taking advantage of the Internet’s vast resources and low-barriers to entry, developers are creating a repository of instructional videos to form a kind of mentoring archive that self-learners can access at will. This is not your standard teaching format, however.One example of this online learning approach is Twitch TV. Although this site looks on the surface to only be a means of sharing video game excursions, there is more available if you dig a bit. In the Creative channels, search for Programming and you’ll come up with a list of videos on the topic. Some are recordings of presentations, while others are a kind of tutorial. The tutorials take the form of “looking over the shoulder” as the video creator narrates their activity. When originally created, these are streamed live, and have a chat line open for real-time question-and-answer. The recorded version then gets archived for latecomers’ use.Another learning resource that uses the same “over the shoulder” video format as Twitch is LiveCoding. Unlike Twitch, however, Live Coding focuses exclusively on coding. It is also more organized in its approach to offering instruction than Twitch. LiveCoding organizes its content by programming language (Java, Python, Ruby, C/C++, etc.), some with tens of thousands of videos available. Within each of those language categories, the site offers a choice of beginner, intermediate, or advanced level topics.These bold experiments in knowledge transfer are intriguing but, for me, unsatisfying.

About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Leicester star Maddison determined to stay groundedby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveLeicester City ace James Maddison is determined not to let his success go to his head.Maddison is confident his family will keep him in line.He told the Daily Mail: “I would never want to come across as arrogant because I wasn’t brought up that way and my mum would be the first to give me a clip around the ear if she thought I was being like that. But I think you have to be confident and have belief in yourself because no one is going to believe in you for you.”He adds: “I’m not conscious of what other people think to be honest. I’ll know if I cross that line and I don’t think I do because I’d never want to be arrogant. There’s no positive of being arrogant, it’s a negative trait.”I am a confident guy and I will always say that but I wasn’t raised to be arrogant, I don’t agree with that. Confidence can go to a certain extent without it being arrogant and I hope I get that balance right and the people that don’t think that, they obviously don’t know me well enough.”
Then-redshirt junior wide receiver Parris Campbell (21) runs the ball downfield during the first quarter of the OSU-Maryland game on Oct. 7. Credit: Ris Twigg | Former Assistant Photo EditorThough the fate of head coach Urban Meyer remains undecided, one change is certain: Zach Smith will not return as wide receivers coach for Ohio State.Because of domestic violence allegations against his ex-wife, Smith was fired on July 23, and a replacement was named 10 days later.Smith ran the receivers through his “Zone 6” mentality, making the group into a unit and bringing together the position as a collective whole.The concept moved past Smith, with the receivers taking on the identity further, resulting in group interviews and creating a “Zone 6” Twitter account.Though Smith leaves, the culture he started with “Zone 6” won’t necessarily be changed immediately.Redshirt senior Parris Campbell could be in a position to lead the group with redshirt junior K.J. Hill, redshirt senior Johnnie Dixon, junior Binjimen Victor, junior Austin Mack and redshirt senior Terry McLaurin all returning to the team. The group will face added pressure this season given that it will be receiving passes from a quarterback who has never made a collegiate start.This receiving group will still remain a collective unit that does not rely on individual standouts, despite a change in coach. Campbell, Hill, Dixon, Victor, Mack and McLaurin combined for more than 2,600 receiving yards and 29 touchdown receptions last season, but no receiver broke 600 yards through the air. Dixon led the team with eight receiving touchdowns, but was eighth on the team in receptions.This balance makes the Ohio State receiving corps a unit by nature, and makes each of them potential tools for redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins to use, and that won’t go away with Smith’s firing.The new wide receivers coach should bring a lot of the same coaching mentalities that Smith leaves behind having coached under him.Brian Hartline was named the interim wide receivers coach for the season after Smith’s firing following a year as a quality control coach, and looks to bring his NFL experience to the position.Hartline, a former Ohio State receiver who helped the 2008 team reach the national championship, spent six years with the Miami Dolphins, breaking 1,000 receiving yards in back-to-back seasons in 2012 and 2013 before ending his professional career with the Cleveland Browns in 2015.Hartline will be coaching one of the most experienced groups Ohio State has had in recent memory, with every core member of the group returning from last year as, mostly, juniors and seniors.Smith leaves with a tarnished reputation, but Hartline has a chance to revitalize this group of wide receivers, and help an inexperienced Haskins find success.
