Developing remotely can be a challenge in the age of social distancing. How can we get our jobs done effectively without the hardware and resources we’re used to? Join Stephen Olsen, who is a Senior Manager of Field Application Engineering at BlackBerry QNX with over 20 years of embedded development experience, for this special series on how to collaborate and develop while working remotely. Each 30-minute session will provide practical (or hands on) tips and tricks for common challenges and include a live Q&A.

The systems embedded developers work on are complex and expensive, which makes working from home especially difficult. Without our teams nearby or the ability to share hardware, remote work can seem impossible. In this webinar, we will discuss how to work remotely without hardware, or where one engineer has the hardware at his/her location and other team members need to access it. This will include:

  • Using SSH through a firewall
  • Debugging at a distance
  • Pushing the reset button or power cycling the board remotely
