Introduction to Wanna Be an Embedded Engineer
Both online and in real life, nearly every day I see people asking what they need to do in order to become embedded engineers.
Some are new graduates; some are still college students; a few are teenagers in high school; and a large minority are hobbyists,
hardware technicians, or application-level programmers looking to improve their salary prospects and/or diversify their skills in order to avoid the 21st century plague of white-collar commoditization.
Why do so many people want to become embedded gurus? The obvious explanation is that young (and not-so-young) programmers and technicians are being lured by the glamorous,
high-profile work, easy conditions, relaxed lifestyle and limitless wealth, delivered by adoring crowds, that only embedded engineering can provide.
Since none of that last sentence is remotely true, however (I’ve been working in the field full time for somewhat more than ten years,
and I don’t clearly recall the last time I was pelted with cash by an adoring crowd), I can only assume that there is some major marketing campaign in progress and it is drawing people to the embedded field.
