Well, my process is going to have to adapt when I start doing some industrial automation-like controllers, which it looks like I might be diving into. Wago PLC specifically, which seems pretty simple.

Right now, I'm often dealing with stuff that's thrown together, or sourced from chinese manufacturers with documentation to match, or just dealing with cheapo chipsets that themselves are quirky.

That's kind of the hobbyist IoT realm, which is a pie I have some fingers in because of the IoT dev I do. I prototype at home using stuff I buy on amazon, and then I have someone I work with fritz it and make the boards with parts sourced from a reliable supplier like digikey. I'm not the only one who touches the circuits though. I'm one of three, and the least skilled at it. The other two people are electrical engineers. I'm software, but on the other hand, I know more hardware details about the particular MCUs we're using right now than anyone I work with. So we kind of lean on each other where we need to. It works.

Another reason I run into the quirks a lot is performance. I have to rip the wires from the walls sometimes to get the thing to perform like I need it to, and that comes with a lot of problems.

An article I wrote recently in fact is basically one big workaround:
Render Professional Screens on IoT[^]
