About the panel

Modern firmware teams need more than just firmware engineers to be successful. You need team members prepared for development and testing as well as post-launch responsibilities like monitoring if you want to scale your devices successfully.  If you don't have some mix of hardware, electrical, software, cloud, DevOps and data engineers on your team, you might have to halt feature development while your firmware engineers spend time writing SQL queries to debug connectivity issues. 

Watch this panel discussion with embedded engineering experts and learn how they have built and scaled successful embedded teams. They share some of their stories of building out teams and some of the challenges they faced.
