Code Craft-Embedding C++: Hacking the Arduino Software Environment

Author: ‘The arduino movement was able to simplify embedded programming to the point where it was readily accessible to non-programmers–as a competent programmer I can’t stand these simplifications so lets go back and add all of the complication back in and try to convince the community to use that’ The reason there is such a vibrant community around the arduino is that it is simple, if you want something complicated why even bother starting with the arduino in the first place? There is nothing magic about the dev board (even the bootloader is just a standard chip45 and they use avrdude for programming), the existing toolchains still work just fine.
