CTO and a co-founder of VyOS.

There is an ongoing argument over whether an account on a code hosting service such as GitHub is an acceptable substitute for a CV or not. Many companies today also encourage or require applicants to send them links to code hosting platform accounts. However, I believe many of them are looking at it from the wrong angle—it’s not the account page that matters but the bigger picture of an applicant’s open-source contributions.

On the surface, a code hosting account page is a poor substitute for a CV. Initially, most services wouldn’t even let users customize their pages. SourceForge had no user account pages (only project pages); GitHub would automatically display one’s most popular repositories, with popularity measured in “stars.” This wouldn’t allow someone to draw attention to projects they personally find most important or add any context to them.

These days GitHub, GitLab and Gitea-based services such as Codeberg allow users to “pin” certain repositories to their page. GitHub added a way to add a custom header to one’s account page so that people can tell visitors what they are actively working on, what projects they want more people to participate in, how to support their projects and so on.

However, if that header is longer than a few paragraphs, it distracts from the page’s main part. Most visitors come to such pages because they are interested in using their owners’ projects, not hiring their owners. It’s also impossible to specify one’s role in a project: You can usually pin a repository to your account page if you ever contributed to it at all, whether you architected and implemented it from scratch or just fixed a few typos in its README file.

So, any code hosting account page is less informative than a CV could be. If it’s going to be viewed by a non-technical recruiter, that’s already a problem. However, there are many more problems with a shallow assessment of such pages.

For example, many people use “stars” as a proxy metric for project popularity and assume that a project with more stars is more widely-used and its maintainers are more influential programmers. However, a star only means that someone clicked on the “star” button—it doesn’t mean they are even using that project, and many people use that feature for bookmarking projects that seem interesting.

The second problem is that only people with code hosting accounts can give a project more stars. For this reason, the most starred projects are usually trendy libraries or frameworks and developer tools written in fashionable languages. At the same time, applications that are very popular with end users may be very under-starred because non-programmer users rarely have code hosting accounts. For the same reason, foundational libraries can have very few stars because few projects use them directly.

So, if you are screening applicants and can only afford a quick look at each of them, a traditional CV is still better. Superficial popularity metrics (or a lack thereof) will not mislead the recruiter, and applicants can include important information that code hosting account pages don’t allow them to convey.

However, if you want to assess an applicant’s qualifications in-depth, looking at their contributions to open-source can let you learn much more about them than any CV could. In fact, you can learn things about them that you could otherwise only learn by hiring them and watching them work. Of course, this requires programming expertise, but non-technical managers should get programmers involved in the hiring process when they are looking to hire programmers in any case.

Even a quick look at the commit history can help you dispel (or confirm) many common fears. Does the applicant consistently use descriptive commit messages? Do they link their commits to issue tracker entries? If you have more time, you can look inside the commits and see if the project author tends to make unreasonably big changes at once or mix code from unrelated features or bug fixes in one commit.

If an applicant contributes to other people’s projects, you can get even more information by looking at their pull requests. Do they include good descriptions of proposed changes? Do they follow the code style and contributing guidelines of projects they contribute to? How do they deal with maintainers asking them to change their code to get it accepted?

If an applicant maintains a project that is popular enough to get bug reports and pull requests, it’s also a great chance to see their qualities as a project leader. At the very least, you can watch them interact with contributors and see whether they can give helpful feedback if contributions aren’t up to their standards.

By looking at one’s open-source contributions, you can learn a lot about their programming qualifications and also their discipline, communication skills and teamwork style without hiring them and potentially wasting your own time and the applicant’s time by hiring a person who wouldn’t be a good fit.

I believe that for companies with projects that aren’t open-source or that don’t allow employees to contribute to open-source software during their working hours, it would be hypocritical to require applicants to have open-source contributions. Making it a requirement will also unfairly exclude a lot of qualified people who cannot or choose not to spend their time doing volunteer work for open-source projects and aren’t given an opportunity to do it as a part of their work.

However, if an applicant gives you a link to their code hosting account page and you think that applicant is a good fit, I believe you shouldn’t limit yourself to just looking at the page itself—you should look deeper to get to know the applicant better than you could otherwise.

Killexams : Code Craft-Embedding C++: Hacking The Arduino Software Environment

The Arduino software environment, including the IDE, libraries, and general approach, are geared toward education. It’s meant as a way to introduce embedded development to newbies. This is a great concept but it falls short when more serious development or more advanced education is required. I keep wrestling with how to address this. One way is by using Eclipse with the Arduino Plug-in. That provides a professional development environment, at least.

The code base for the Arduino is another frustration. Bluntly, the use of setup() and loop() with main() being hidden really bugs me. The mixture of C and C++ in libraries and examples is another irritation. There is enough C++ being used that it makes sense it should be the standard. Plus a good portion of the library code could be a lot better. At this point fixing this would be a monumental task requiring many dedicated developers to do the rewrite. But there are a some things that can be done so let’s see a couple possibilities and how they would be used.

As mentioned, hiding main() bugs me. It’s an inherent part of C++ which makes it an important to learning the language. Up until now I’d not considered how to address this. I knew that an Arduino main() existed from poking around in the code base – it had to be there because it is required by the C++ standard. The light dawned on me to try copying the code in the file main.cpp into my own code. It built, but how could I be sure that it was using my code and not the original from the Arduino libraries? I commented out setup() and it still built, so it had to be using my version otherwise there’d be an error about setup() being missing. You may wonder why it used my version.

When you build a program… Yes, it’s a “program” not a “sketch”, a “daughter board” not a “shield”, and a “linker” not a “combiner”! Why is everyone trying to change the language used for software development?

When you build a C++ program there are two main stages. You compile the code using the compiler. That generates a number of object files — one for each source file. The linker then combines the compiled objects to create an executable. The linker starts by looking for the C run time code (CRTC). This is the code that does some setup prior to main() being called. In the CRTC there will be external symbols, main() being one, whose code exists in other files.

The linker is going to look in two places for those missing symbols. First, it loads all the object files, sorts out the symbols from them, and builds a list of what is missing. Second, it looks through any included libraries of pre-compiled objects for the remaining symbols. If any symbols are still missing, it emits an error message.

If you look in the Arduino files you’ll find a main.cpp file that contains a main() function. That ends up in the library. When the linker starts, my version of main() is in a newly created object file. Since object files are processed first the linker uses my version of main(). The library version is ignored.

There is still something unusual about main(). Here’s the infinite for loop in main():

        for (;;) {
                loop();
                if (serialEventRun) serialEventRun();
        }

The call to loop() is as expected but why is there an if statement and serialEventRun? The function checks if serial input data is available. The if relies on a trick of the tool chain, not C++, which checks the existence of the symbol serialEventRun. When the symbol does not exist the if and its code are omitted.

Zapping setup() and loop()

Now that I have control over main() I can address my other pet peeve, the setup() and loop() functions. I can eliminate these two function by creating my own version of main(). I’m not saying the use of setup() and loop() were wrong, especially in light of the educational goal of Arduino. Using them makes it clear how to organize an embedded system. This is the same concept behind C++ constructors and member functions. Get the initialization done at the right time and place and a good chunk of software problems evaporate. But since C++ offers this automatically with classes, the next step is to utilize C++’s capabilities.

Global Instantiation

One issue with C++ is the cost of initialization of global, or file, scope class instances. There is some additional code executed before main() to handle this as we saw in the article that introduced classes. I think this overhead is small enough that it’s not a problem.

An issue that may be a problem is the order of initialization. The order is defined within a compilation unit (usually a file) from the first declaration to the last. But across compilation units the ordering is undefined. One time all the globals in file A may be initialized first and the next time those in file B might come first. The order is important when one class depends on another being initialized first. If they are in different compilation units this is impossible to ensure. One solution is to put all the globals in a single compilation unit. This may not work if a library contains global instances.

A related issue occurs on large embedded computer systems, such as a Raspberry Pi running Linux, when arguments from the command line are passed to main(). Environment variables are also a problem since they may not be available until main() executes. Global instance won’t have access to this information so cannot use it during their initialization. I ran into this problem with my robots whose control computer was a PC. I was using the robot’s network name to determine their initial behaviors. It wasn’t available until main() was entered, so it couldn’t be used to initialize global instances.

This is an issue with smaller embedded systems that don’t pass arguments or have environment values but I don’t want to focus only on them. I’m looking to address the general situation that would include larger systems so we’ll assume we don’t want global instances.

The approach I’m taking and sharing with you is an experiment. I have done something similar in the past with a robotics project but the approach was not thoroughly analyzed. As often happens, I ran out of time so I implemented this as a quick solution. Whether this is useful in the long run we’ll have to see. If nothing else it will show you more about working with C++.

My approach is to create a Program class with a member run() function. The setup for the entire program occurs in the class constructor and the run() function handles all the processing. What would normally be global variables are data members.

Here is the declaration of a skeleton Program class and the implementation of run():

class Program {
public:
        void run();
        static Program& makeProgram() {
                static Program p;
                return p;
        }

private:
        Program() { }
        void checkSerialInput();
};

void Program::run() {
        for (;;) {
                // program code here
                checkSerialInput();
        }
}

We only want one instance of Program to exist so I’ve assured this by making the constructor private and providing the static makeProgram() function to return the static instance created the first time makeProgram() is called. The Program member function checkSerialInput() handles checking for the serial input as discussed above. In checkSerialInput() I introduced an #if block to eliminate the genuine code if the program is not using serial input.

Here is how Program is used in main.cpp:


void arduino_init() {
        init();
        initVariant();
}

int main(void) {
        arduino_init();
        Program& p = Program::makeProgram();
        p.run();
        return 0;
}

The function initArduino() is inlined and handles the two initialization routines required to setup the Arduino environment.

One of the techniques for good software development is to hide complexity and provide a descriptive name for what it does. These functions hide not only the code but, in one case, the conditional compilation.

redbotThis code experiment uses a Sparkfun Redbot setup for line following. This is a two wheeled robot with 3 optical sensors to detect the line and an I2C accelerometer to sense bumping into objects. The computer is a Sparkfun Redbot Mainboard which is compatible with the Arduino Uno but provides a much different layout and includes a motor driver IC.

This robot is simple enough to make a manageable project but sufficiently complex to serve as a good test, especially when the project gets to the control system software. The basic code for handling these motors and sensors comes from Sparkfun and uses only the basic pin-level Arduino routines. I can’t possibly hack the entire Arduino code but using the Sparkfun code provides a manageable subset for experimenting.

For this article we’ll just look at the controlling the motors. Let’s start with the declaration of the Program class for testing the motor routines:

class Program {
public:
        void run();
        static Program& makeProgram() {
                static Program p;
                return p;
        }

private:
        Program() { }
        static constexpr int delay_time { 2000 };

        rm::Motor l_motor { l_motor_forward, l_motor_reverse, l_motor_pwm };
        rm::Motor r_motor { r_motor_forward, r_motor_reverse, r_motor_pwm };
        rm::Wheels wheels { l_motor, r_motor };

        void checkSerialInput();
};

There is a namespace rm enclosing the classes I’ve defined for the project, hence the rm:: prefacing the class names. On line 11 is something you may not have seen, a constexpr which is new in C++ 11 and expanded in C++14. It declares that delay_time is a true constant used during compilation and will not be allocated storage at run-time. There is a lot more to constexpr and we’ll see it more in the future. One other place I used it for this project is to define what pins to use. Here’s a sample:

constexpr int l_motor_forward = 2;
constexpr int l_motor_reverse = 4;
constexpr int l_motor_pwm = 5;
constexpr int r_motor_pwm = 6;
constexpr int r_motor_forward = 7;
constexpr int r_motor_reverse = 8;

The Motor class controls a motor. It requires two pins to control the direction and one pulse width modulation (PWM) pin to control the speed. The pins are passed via constructor and the names should be self-explanatory. The Wheels class provides coordinated movement of the robot using the Motor instances. The Motor instances are passed as references for the use of Wheels. Here are the two class declarations:

class Motor : public Device {
public:
        Motor(const int forward, const int reverse, const int pwm);

        void coast();
        void drive(const int speed);

        int speed() const {
                return mSpeed;
        }

private:
        void speed(const int speed);

        PinOut mForward;
        PinOut mReverse;
        PinOut mPwm;
        int mSpeed { };
};


class Wheels {
public:
        Wheels(Motor& left, Motor& right) :
                        mLeft(left), mRight(right) {
        }

        void move(const int speed) {
                drive(speed, speed);
        }
        void pivot(const int speed) {
                drive(speed, -speed);
        }
        void stop() {
                mLeft.coast();
                mRight.coast();
        }

        void drive(const int left, const int right) {
                mLeft.drive(left);
                mRight.drive(right);
        }

private:
        Motor& mLeft;
        Motor& mRight;
};

The workhorse of Wheels is the function drive() which just calls the Motor drive() functions for each motor. Except for stop(), the other Wheels functions are utilities that use drive() and just make things easier for the developer. The compiler should convert those to a direct call to driver() since they are inline by being inside the class declaration. This is one of the interesting ways of using inline functions to enhance the utility of a class without incurring any cost in code or time.

The run() method in Program tests the motors by pivot()ing first in one direction and then the other at different speeds. A pivot() rotates the robot in place. Once the speed is set it continues until changed so the delay functions simply provide a little time for the robot to turn. Here’s the code:

void Program::run() {
        for (;;) {
                wheels.pivot(50);
                delay (delay_time);

                wheels.pivot(-100);
                delay(delay_time);

                checkSerialInput();
                if (serialEventRun) {
                }
        }
}

The Redbot project is an interesting vehicle for demonstrating code techniques. The current test of the motor routines demonstrates how to override the existing Arduino main(). Even if you don’t like my approach with Program, the flexibility of using your own main() may come in handy for your own projects. The next article is going to revisit this program using templates.

Over at Hackaday.io, I’ve created an Embedding C++ project. The project will maintain a list of these articles in the project description as a form of Table of Contents. Each article will have a project log entry for additional discussion. Those interested can delve deeper into the topics, raise questions, and share additional findings.

The project also will serve as a place for supplementary material from myself or collaborators. For instance, someone might want to take the code and report the results for other Arduino boards or even other embedded systems. Stop by and see what’s happening.

Killexams : New $10M NSF-funded Institute Will Get to the CORE of Data Science

Aug. 2, 2022 — A new National Science Foundation initiative has created a $10 million dollar institute led by computer and data scientists at University of California San Diego that aims to transform the core fundamentals of the rapidly emerging field of Data Science.

Called The Institute for Emerging CORE Methods in Data Science (EnCORE), the institute will be housed in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), in collaboration with The Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute (HDSI), and will tackle a set of important problems in theoretical foundations of Data Science.

The EnCORE institute will be directed by CSE and HDSI Associate Professor Barna Saha.

UC San Diego team members will work with researchers from three partnering institutions – University of Pennsylvania, University of Texas at Austin and University of California, Los Angeles — to transform four core aspects of data science: complexity of data, optimization, responsible computing, and education and engagement.

EnCORE will join three other NSF-funded institutes in the country dedicated to the exploration of data science through the NSF’s Transdisciplinary Research in Principles of Data Science Phase II (TRIPODS) program.

“The NSF TRIPODS Institutes will bring advances in data science theory that Boost health care, manufacturing, and many other applications and industries that use data for decision-making,” said NSF Division Director for Electrical, Communications and Cyber Systems Shekhar Bhansali.

UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla said UC San Diego’s highly collaborative, multidisciplinary community is the perfect environment to launch and develop EnCORE. “We have a long history of successful cross-disciplinary collaboration on and off campus, with renowned research institutions across the nation. UC San Diego is also home to the San Diego Supercomputer Center, the HDSI, and leading researchers in artificial intelligence and machine learning,” Khosla said. ”We have the capacity to house and analyze a wide variety of massive and complex data sets by some of the most brilliant minds of our time, and then share that knowledge with the world.”

Barna Saha, the EnCORE project lead and an associate professor in UC San Diego’s Department of Computer Science and Engineering and HDSI, said: “We envision EnCORE will become a hub of theoretical research in computing and Data Science in Southern California. This kind of national institute was lacking in this region, which has a lot of talent. This will fill a much-needed gap.”

The core of EnCORE: co-principal investigators include (from l to r) Yusu Wang, Barna Saha (the principal investigator), Kamalika Chaudhuri, (top row) Arya Mazumdar and Sanjoy Dasgupta. (Not pictured, Gal Mishne).

The other UC San Diego faculty members in the institute include professors Kamalika Chaudhuri, and Sanjoy Dasgupta from CSE; Arya Mazumdar, Gal Mishne, and Yusu Wang from HDSI; and Fan Chung Graham from CSE and the Department of Mathematics. Saura Naderi of HDSI will spearhead the outreach activities of the institute.

“Professor Barna Saha has assembled a team of exceptional scholars across UC San Diego and across the nation to explore the underpinnings of data science. This kind of institute, focused on groundbreaking research, innovative education and effective outreach, will be a model of interdisciplinary initiatives for years to come,” said Department of Computer Science and Engineering Chair Sorin Lerner.

CORE Pillars of Data Science

The EnCORE Institute seeks to investigate and transform three research aspects of Data Science:

  • C, for Complexities of Data: data the researchers are dealing with is complex, of massive size and noisy. They will investigate what new tools and approaches are needed to address data complexity, including an overhaul of the concepts of algorithms, statistics and machine learning.
  • O, for Optimization: a very old and traditional field, it now needs to be data driven, which brings new challenges. Modern data and technology have created a large gulf between theory and practice of optimization. Adaptive methods and human intervention can lead to major advancement in machine learning.
  • R, for Responsible Learning: the ethical responsibility of when researchers are dealing with massive data, data with sensitive information and using that data to make decisions needs to be reoriented to adapt to an uncertain world.

“EnCORE represents exactly the kind of talent convergence that is necessary to address the emerging societal need for responsible use of data. As a campus hub for data science, HDSI is proud of a compelling talent pool to work together in advancing the field,” said HDSI founding director Rajesh K. Gupta.

Team members expressed excitement about the opportunity of interdisciplinary research that the institute will provide. They will work together to Boost privacy-preserving machine learning and robust learning, and to integrate geometric and topological ideas with algorithms and machine learning methodologies to tame the complexity in modern data. They envision a new era in optimization with the presence of strong statistical and computational components adding new challenges.

“One of the exciting research thrusts at EnCORE is data science for accelerating scientific discoveries in domain sciences,” said Gal Mishne, an assistant professor at HDSI. As part of EnCORE, the team will be developing fast, robust low-distortion visualization tools for real-world data in collaboration with domain experts. In addition, the team will be developing geometric data analysis tools for neuroscience, a field which is undergoing an explosion of data at multiple scales.

From K-12 and Beyond

A distinctive aspect to EnCORE will be the “E,” education and engagement, component.

The institute will engage students at all levels, from K-12 to postdoctoral students, and junior faculty and conduct extensive outreach activities at all of its four sites.

The geographic span of the institute in three regions of the United States will be a benefit as the institute executes its outreach plan, which includes regular workshops, events, hiring of students and postdoctoral students. Online and joint courses between the partner institutions will also be offered.

Activities to reach out to high school, middle school and elementary students in Southern California are also part of the institute’s plan, with the first engagement planned for this summer with the Sweetwater Union High School District to teach students about the foundations of data science.

There will also be mentorship and training opportunities with researchers affiliated with EnCORE, helping to create a pipeline of data scientists and broadening the reach and impact of the field. Additionally, collaboration with industry is being planned.

Mazumdar, an associate professor in the HDSI and an affiliated faculty member in CSE, said the team has already put much thought and effort into developing data science curricula across all levels. “We aim to create a generation of experts while being mindful of the needs of society and recognizing the demands of industry,” he said.

“We have made connections with numerous industry partners, including prominent data science techs and also with local Southern California industries including start-ups, who will be actively engaged with the institute and keep us informed about their needs,” Mazumdar added.

An interdisciplinary, diverse field- and team

Data science has footprints in computer science, mathematics, statistics and engineering. In that spirit, the researchers from the four participating institutions who comprise the core team have diverse and varied backgrounds from four disciplines.

“Data science is a new, and a very interdisciplinary area. To make significant progress in Data Science you need expertise from these diverse disciplines. And it’s very hard to find experts in all these areas under one department,” said Saha. “To make progress in Data Science, you need collaborations from across the disciplines and a range of expertise. I think this institute will provide this opportunity.”

And the institute will further diversity in science, as EnCORE is being spearheaded by women who are leaders in their fields.
