Disclosure: On this site you won’t find specific advice on “how to call function xyz()”. Interpreting C++ ARM and #pragma dwim is also out of scope.

We’re treating our readers as intelligent beings who can use Google and/or StackOverflow, where all such specific questions were answered more than once.

What you will find is opinions on all the aspects of software development (from UI to scalability, reliability and security) for all kinds of systems (from large-scale systems to embedded ones), the reasoning behind those opinions, and tons of practical observations, which may help you to choose what you really need for your specific task.
