In this edition of the embedded insiders, Brandon and Rich ponder whether RISC-V is taking too long to become a mainstream technology, or if it will even ever be one. Despite being open-source and all of the initial hype, will RISC-V become all that it has so-far been made it out to be?

Later, the Insiders are joined by Mark Himelstein, the newly-appointed CTO of RISC-V International. The three discuss the architectural future of RISC-V and how he plans to drive the technology deeper into the hearts and minds of engineers.

Later, Jean Labrosse is back with more, “Things that annoy a veteran software engineer” where he explains why he hates when APIs return meaningless error codes, such as zero for success and one or minus one for failure.
