Device driver writers possess a special blend of software and hardware skills (among other things). They need to write highly structured and elegant code as well as debug down to the register level of the hardware. They have to do their tasks with less then optimal debug hardware. They often make do without JTAG or Ethernet debug tools and fix tough problems with just their wit and a GPIO line. If you have the tenacity to write device drivers read on.
Yuppiii first post!
Well, now a bit more serious, the article appears to be interesting to people without device driver development knowledge.
It just seems too high level, more on what drivers are good for kind of thing.
Some code and some toolset discussion would be more interesting given the article’s title.
