Re: Part III: Getting Your System Up and Running

@GStringham – Concerning H/W vs S/W, I once did a H/W design of a capacitive keyboard many years ago.  Capacitive keyboards were a bit novel at the time.  The board worked fine after I fully tested it with my own test firmware.  I handed it over to the S/W group and it worked fine for them.  After the S/W folks were done with it, it was handed over to the folks that do the exhaustive testing before final release.  It was about this time I had submitted my resignation because I had accepted a job offer at another company.  During my 2-week notice time, I was presented with a problem with my design.  The keyboard didn't work reliably when more than key was pressed at one time.  It wasn't written into the requirements, so the capability wasn't designed in.  Neither the S/W folks nor I tested this because nobody knew until the H/W was done and the drivers were written.  I never had an opportunity to complete the correction of the flaw before I was gone.  :.(

With strong marketplace demand for qualified engineers across the board that currently outstrips the available supply, there may never be a better time for engineers and project managers to advance their careers and salaries. Whether those moves are successful in the short-term and long-term is likely to depend on how the transition from one job to the next is handled.
