December 4 - Day 5: Running and Troubleshooting Our RTOS Design

Now that our code is written, we will need to test and debug it. In this final class, we will see how the debugger works with the RTOS to provide task-level debugging to help us debug and make the application work. The finished code will be available to help course students follow along and compare...
