mbed 2.0 - A sneak preview

Next week at Embedded World, we will be officially announcing "mbed 2.0". We'll be posting and announcing more next week, but one aspect is http://mbed.org has had a bit of a face lift; things like bringing the new QnA to the front, improved search and generally nicer layout.

The new site is now in public beta, so feel free to login and take a look, and of course, help us spot bugs!

Enable it by visiting:

Here is a little peek:

Some nice things we'll highlight:

  • We've mapped out what we believe is the journey a typical mbed user makes; exploring the platform and its capabilities, buying and mbed development board and getting started, prototyping a new design or product, and finally transferring that product into manufacturing.
  • The compiler has had some extensive work around library importing, and there there is now documentation within the compiler itself

There has also been a significant amount of work on the content pages of the site, bringing them into closer alignment with what out users need and expect from the mbed platform, and make prototyping with the mbed platform even more productive.

The main announcements are still to come, along with the public release of the new site. Have a look around while you wait, let us know what you think!

The board is (at least) available at rs-online!

In order to keep all Beta Q&A together, i created 2 topics in the Bugs & Suggestions forum: BETA - mbed site and BETA - mbed compiler.

Or do we post all bugs and remarks here or send them directly to support@mbed.org?

I think the forum is the best place since we can separate compiler and website issues and other users can also check if a problem already has been reported.

Hi Frank,

Thats great; using those threads is definitely the right place.

Thanks!

Perhaps adding a BETA topic to the mbed forum index would be better?
