Traditional development lore says that software development for constrained devices requires writing code in C, as applications written with C++ will always be bigger, require more resources and will run slower than their C counterparts. Nothing could be farther from the truth. While it is true that many C++ applications are big and demand a lot of resources, that is not a limitation of the language itself. This session will begin by giving the motivation of why C++ would be interesting in constrained-device development: it will briefly discuss what features of the language may make software safer and how such software can be even more efficient than those written in C. The presenter will then explain what aspects of the language developers should be specially aware of are and will provide information for developers to be able to develop their software in C++, without undue cost.
