Need a list of the best tools, e-books & tuts, ide's etc. for embedded systems and devices development Answered

Hello Everybody!!!
I Just recently dedicated myself and career to the development and design of embedded systems, devices and technology. I just wanted to know if anybody had a list or a link of the most essential tools and other resources to help learn and develop a highly efficient setup and environment for this field of study and employment.


Thank You
AO!

It depends... You've got your arduinos, stamps, pics, propeller, beaglebone, raspberry pi, fpga... Even internet of things is a broad field, wireless, bluetooth, power control, servos, motors,... What have you played around with or interested in?

Thanks for the reply Dad!

I've been working with Arduino and Pic. I have the arduino and mplabx ide's. I really just want to gain knowledge of the entire embedded systems spectrum cause really thats where I want to take my career but I know I need to start with the simple stuff. But I really want to work on military defense, UAV's, Robotics, etc.(basicly high tech futuristic type endeavors). It's hard to pin point exactly what embedded nich I'm looking for cause almost everything around us has some kind of embedded structure. I also love cell phone and tablet tech. as well. But UAV's are the ultimate for me. So what tools and other things would you suggest and is knowing C/C++ and javascript-CSS-Html a good base as far as programming languages go or do I really have to get down and dirty with languages like Lisp and assembly?

Thank You

AO!

Seems like you are leaning toward computer science studies or if you are more hardware oriented into electrical or mechanical engineering. I suggest you find a small project to build and put up an instructable. Making forces you to solve problems, gain experience, focus on what you really like to do and be resourceful. Good luck.
