Community Members on the Benefits of E2E

"I joined the E2E Community because I had a problem with the (then) new MSP430F5438 which I couldn't resolve based on the datasheets. I didn't find help here, however, as it turned out to be a bug in the user's guide (which was corrected after I discovered what was going on based on my own experiments).

While I was hoping for an answer, I browsed through the other threads and found many interesting discussions and challenging problems. And many of them gave me inspiration for my own improvements and new features for my firmware. Also, I like solving puzzles."
- Jens-Michael Gross - E2E Guru


"When starting my first MSP430 project, I also started to use TI's Code Composer Studio (CCS) v4 IDE. I was struggling with the linker command file (since I used IAR tools in the past for most of my projects) on creating a custom segment in flash. While I was searching for answers I hit TI's E2E community (I was not aware of it before). I posted my first question on E2E and got it answered within a few hours. Great!"
