GDB Deep Dive

Status: Available Now

GDB is a powerful tool to analyze and debug firmware. It enables developers to step through instructions, view disassembly, peer into registers, analyze back traces, and so much more to help debug. Without it, I cannot imagine developing firmware! There is a lot to unpack about how to use GDB effectively, so this talk will focus on a few key topics including a rundown of important GDB commands, the GDB Python API, options for visual debugging, and how GDB plays a role even after you ship IoT device firmware.
