1 15 c c++ google test framework I have been coding in c/c++ for few years, but I don't hav idea on TDD. So I need to explore now. Using google framework, we write test cases for the code under test. Earlier network elements now, data collectors for water meters. c cross compiler for nxp platform 1-5 minutes We have certain guidelines to follow. If there are more number of test cases pertaining to each function then definitely we know. Reviewers follow the review guidelines document and review the code. 10 4 3 It gives me immense pleasure to see my code is runnung on the systems. Bit tedious job to design the software application architecture that gives flexibility to enhance. I just know first we need to write test cases before even to start with developing code. My organization mandated this course to complete. Show
4 13 C C++, python, Java, C# None I've been wanting to get some form of testing integrated into my personal Android apps. Generally top-level integration testing when changes are made Embedded Linux + FPGA w/soft microcontroller vim, CMake, Intel Quartus 5-30 minutes Varies from project to project/application to application as-needed. When it includes duplicate code that could be made into another shared function elsewhere. Very basic reviews on each pull-request 10 5 85 Making things work, tracking down obscure bugs and fixing them with one line Bad tools/vendor support Avoiding getting bogged down writing tests when we don't even know what the legacy code is doing. I'm open to learning about tdd, but am mostly here due to the company organizing it. Show
1 26 C C++, Python CppUnit, QSpy, TSIM (for VxWorks) I like walking in the woods with my dog, road biking, mountain biking. I consider myself an advanced C++ designer/developer and am pretty good with Python. Run on hardware in the debugger. Hack my code to hardcode values or execution paths. STM32 Cube STM32 Cube IDE (eclipse), CLion 1-5 minutes I think we have a Confluence page Is there such a thing? All code must be merged via pull requests. All pull requests must be approved by invited reviewers 60 5 35 I can create something new and useful from scratch. I like working with hardware. We still can't/won't estimate accurately (or truthfully?) I worked on a project a couple of years ago which was truly TDD. I loved it. Part of the reason I was hired at Inficon is because of my advocacy for TDD during my interview. Show
1 6 C++ Python, CUDA, C Catch2 Software engineer with Electrical Engineer background in communications and DSP. Manually. No unit tests or any automated tested machinery. Linux on x86. Basically a mini-desktop platform with a few GB of memory. CMake, GCC, Clang format, VS Code, Visual Studio 11-30 seconds No official coding standard. When it has more than one purpose. All changes to the main dev branch must be submitted as a PR on bitbucket, req. one reviewer. 5 0 5 Problem solving. Working with poorly thought out legacy code. Familiar with the concept, but haven't worked on a project that develops strictly by TDD. Proximate cause: chosen training by the software manager. Ultimate cause: training has real value. Show

0.6 15 C Python Ceedling Not buzzword compliant Functional testing STM32 Cortex-M7 STM32CubeIDE 31-60 seconds MISRA-C A good function is to the point and primarily does one core thing. Pull requests are reviewed by the team before merging into the main branch. 7 4 3 The challenge of deconstructing a problem and developing a solution using software. Software that's too hardware dependent. Software that's not readily reusable. TDD starts with writing a failing test case and then creating just enough code to pass the test. To understand and implement test driven development wherever possible. Show
1 15 C C++, Python N/A N/A Manual testing. Very limited automated testing Embedded devices N/A 1-5 minutes N/A If it doesn't fit into my screen. If it has too much complexity Peer reviews for all pull requests 40 20 40 To make computer/microcontroller do what I need it to do Debug tools that don't cooperate You need to have test in mind and start by thinking how you can test a piece of code before you star To learn what TDD really is Show
1 4 C/C++ Python CUnit framework I am interested to see how classes I took on TDD in college can be applied to real-world application code and how to integrate testing into already existing code bases. With log files and debugging statements Linux-OS based machine Visual Studio Code and GDB 5-30 minutes It differs within my projects codebase as some of the code is acquired code. Lately by using the getrusage utility, but eventually would like to use something like gprof. Pull requests are created that reviewers can comment on 20 40 40 Being able to develop applications and systems that power today's innovations Tracking down and plugging memory-leaks when they occur That writing tests first demonstrates you know the expected/desired requirements of your code Automating the testing of code functionality sounds like an incredible way to better allocate time Show

I like to pull the code down and go over it in the IDE. 60 10 30 Controlling the hardware, instant gratification when something works. deadlines :) Very little. I would like to learn how to use it with Embedded C systems. Show
20 30 C++ C, Java, Php Junit, Gtest . unit tests with google test pc windows software, android apps Qt Creator, android studio 31-60 seconds internal when it's more than, say, 200 lines too few developers 70 15 15 it's a creative process I did it for decades I use it regularly I'd like to figure out how to do TDD on MICROs Show

2 months 10 years Embedded C I was using Python & VB.net in my previous job Nothing I have worked in various domains like Railway displays, automotive & Electrical domains. I used multiple programming languages during my previous experience like Embedded C, Python & VB.Net. Currently I am writing testcases using utest, and ensure that all test cases are passed. Right now I'm working on a cellular module for water meters. IAR Embedded workbench, Visual studio, GIT 1-5 minutes I follow barr & misra C coding standards If it has too many statements and too many function calls Before merging the code into remote branch, my code will be reviewed by all other team members 5 3 2 We can find various solutions for a problem statement, and implement new tools/functionalities Sometimes with oversight we take more time for small issues in the code. Its Test Driven Development where a unit test will be written along with the regular functional code I thought it will be very helpful for my day to day work also to my future Show
3 10 C Assembler none I studied electronic. At home I try to repair any sort of electronic device. In my free time I like running. I normally test the code on the target using a programmer/debugger tool. The target is an embedded system based on 16bit or Arm microcontroller I usually use the IDE supported by the microcontroller manufacturer. 1-5 minutes We follow few coding rules defined with my colleagues (e.g: variable/function naming, comments etc. I don't have a specific rule. It's usually done by myself in order to find mistakes or improve code, sometimes I ask to colleagues 30 20 50 I like to see how a raw schematic become a working object which I can control with my code When the complexity of the code increases, it becomes difficult and time consuming to resolve bugs It is a way to design code in order to increase testability and maintenance in the time To learn this programming approach and start to apply unit tests either on new project and old ones Show
1.5 5 C++ C, Python CppuTest I have a golden retriever named after the Archer cartoon's main character, Archer As a developer write and test against unit tests. Commits are tested by an automated build system. Thermal printers controlled by an embedded Arm system. Qnx Momentics, PCLint, CppuTest 5-30 minutes N/a When it gets difficult to tell what's happening in it. N/a 60 10 30 Finding challenging problems and creative solutions N/a Not much, but I've heard good things about it. It was assigned to me, but always enjoy learning new techniques and adding a tool to my belt. Show
1 5 C/C++ Python, Rust, Javascript. CppUTest, Python unittests. I am an early career firmware engineer. I am at my first first job, and am trying to develop good habits early. Code first, run existing tests, and create a new test if necessary. Target system is either an x86 VM, or an ARM chip. Eclipse 11-30 seconds Internal standard. When it becomes hard to read and I see repeated sections of code. Done with either a review software, or pair programming. 30 30 40 I enjoy the problem solving aspect of development! Dealing with intermittent issues/bugs in code. Write a test first, then develop for that test. I want to write better quality code faster. Show
18 20 C++ Python, Matlab Python Unittest Python UnitTest framework unsing the web interface of our device (kind of system test) ARM Cortex A based embedded device running on Linux Eclipse, GCC/GDB, PyCharm, GitLab, Teamcity 31-60 seconds 10 40 50 unhappy with the test coverage of the current project, starting a new project soon Show
4 10 Python C, C++, Javascript, Matlab Python unit tests and teamcity CD/CI Brazilian, Electrical engineer, Curious, Lazy sometimes Python unit tests and teamcity CD/CI Embedded linux and rtos Pycharm, Visual Studio Code, Virtual Box 31-60 seconds Try to make as modular and agnostic as possible If it's replicating code of other functions or making more stuff than what the function name defines I often make silly mistakes 5 2 3 Solving complex problems Debugging Only that you create tests before you code To increase development speed and decrease debugging time Show
14 30 c# Long time ago: java, c, c++, fortran, lisp Resharper Unit testing Testing tools in Visual Studio I like software development Unit testing, acceptance testing, manual testing for the GUI PC Visual Studio 11-30 seconds Whatever Visual Studio/Resharper suggest When it does more than one thing We are a team of two: we review each other 60 20 20 Everything:building, breaking, fixing...but most of all to help people save time when thy use our sw When people who don't know the sw, make decisions about it :-) Did a stint some years ago. Not doing tdd anymore, but would love to do it again Not doing tdd anymore, but would love to do it again Show
1.5 4 C# Currently just C# GitLab CI Im fairly new so I do not have that much experience with test harnesses or testing in general. What I see is that tests tend to be down in the priority list for most people. So I look forward to learn a lot about TDD. We currently have a few MSTests. Everytime we commit something these tests are executed. Also before committing we execute the tests manually. Windows PC GitLab Visual Studio Confluence ReSharper 11-30 seconds I try to use the C# coding convention by microsoft. If inside the function there are parts which are meaningful enough to require a function on its own We have a small team (2 people). So usually before committing we look at the code together. 50 20 30 I like the always learning aspect of it. There is almost no day where you don't learn something new. Unrealistic deadlines Create a test first. Build logic later. Continuous growth of complexity, refactoring and testing. I want to learn about TDD. How to use it, its benefits, how to implement it on a real environment Show
1.5 5 It was Java Chora (Embedded Wizard), Python, C, a little Cpp GitLab CI Since I joined the current company I am coding the UI 95% of the time. In a few weeks, I am going to start coding again in C/Cpp or Java for a new project. Mostly manual testing Embedded devices (cortex A with Linux or M architectures with RTOS) Eclipse, Embedded Wizard IDE, 31-60 seconds Not following one in particular, I try to apply the SOLID principles whenever I can When it does more than a function or when a portion of this function could be useful somewhere else I've never had, except for small parts of code when they were needed by one of my colleagues 50 40 10 solving problems and finding efficient solutions testing when there's UX or hardware involved just basic theory, I tried in the previous company for embedded stm32 boards but it didn't last long To learn more properly so I could apply for embedded development and the new coming project Show
14 35 C/C++ Python, C#, PHP, Matlab, Javascript, Bash, Assembly Google Test An old dog eager to learn new tricks Mostly with automated scripts for unit, integration and regression test. Some unit tests (not driving the development), some debugging. Portable audio analyzer, dual ARMv7 running Debian 10 on Linux kernel 4.9.11 with RT patch Eclipse CDT, Visual Studio, VS Code, PyCharm, Git/GitExtensions, TeamCity 31-60 seconds We have some guidelines for indenting and identifier naming, not always consistently followed. More than 2 screens long, more than 5 nesting levels. Limits may vary to facilitate comprehension. Only occasional. Some pair programming. 50 25 25 You always learn something new with every project. Menial and repetitive tasks that can be hardly automated. You iterate writing tests first that capture the requirements, then the code that makes tests pass. Not my idea, but TDD makes sense and is worth a try. Show
1 25 C++ Python, C, Matlab -none- I believe that writing software is engineering and not art, so let's apply all the tools available to make it better! Some unit tests written after the code is "ready", plus integration/system tests. A a lot of manual testing... Hand-held device: MCU running RTOS, display, keys input, storage, USB, cloud connectivity -- 31-60 seconds Don't have one at the moment, but planning to introduce one If it doesn't fit in one screen Don't have code reviews at the moment, but planning to start doing it 30% 15% 55% Thinking about architecture, define how each module should work, interfaces and algorithms. Debugging! Read your book, informed myself through podcasts, internet. Big fan of it - that's the way to go! I want to be able to support the developers in embracing and practicing TDD. Show
8.5 15 python, c java, c++ (little), shell scripting plain asserts inc, unittest (python), junit Currently working as R&D manager in IOT space mainly (smart metering) following project activities and supporting colleagues, sometimes I do programming (software and firmware) and electronics design sometime asserts or googletest Ultra low power embedded systems (bare metal without OS) on 16 or 32 bits (ARM) MCUS Mostly eclipse based tools, sometimes VSCODE 1-5 minutes We have an internal not really formalized standard at the moment, followed Linux in the past When I have to scroll the window to see the whole function Not yet really doing those unless a colleagues asks to do them 33% 33% 33% Creating things that work ! Solving bugs, understanding other people's code Shortly a methodology where you first write a test for you code and then the code itself The aim is to improve quality of code/products of the team (including myself) Show
1 12 c++ c, python, rust, bash Cpputest i have a degree in electrical engineering from the University of Tennessee write and run automated unit and integration tests we develop for an ARMv7 CPU in printers Momentics, svn, git, vim 1-5 minutes maintain the style of the codebase while not (re)introducing code smells when i need to use the scrollwheel to read it all, and there isn't just a huge switch statement we have a remote, asynchronous code review process, allowing experts in any time zone to give input 30 30 40 integrating and interfacing with various hardware components debugging for hours, only to find a simple logic error i've read the book, and worked in a test-driven environment for over a year manager suggested it, and i don't have to pay for it myself :D Show
1 10 C C++, Python static analysis I'm Fernando from Milan. I've worked in the embedded system field for 5 years. debugging mode, non regression test on target side embedded system vendor IDE 1-5 minutes I don't know how to rename it. no code review 40 30 30 there is no line, It's all up to you repetitive task It's an alternative to the waterfall design. It moves the key pint on the test side in someway. I want to improve my test and design skills, therefore I chose this training. Show

10 20 C C++, PHP Unity, PHPUnit Originally electronical engineer. Ended up in developing embedded software. - Mostly STM32 An IDE, development board and a logic analyzer. 5-30 minutes - - - 40 10 50 The puzzeling and the unforgivingness (how your mistake always shows up) - Testing - Always strugling how/where to start In short: Develop to make your tests pass. Work in small steps. Run tests continuously. I am not sure how/where to start with TDD. I hope this training gets me up to speed. Show
5+ few months C Python none I am Hardware Development Engineer and code occasionally for prototyping the hardware.

3 20+ C Bit of C++, C# and Python None Software Supervisor for software team in Valley Forge looking after both NPD and Sustaining activities. Work varies but averages 20-30% software design/coding. Mostly functional/manual level testing. Various embedded processors, incl Renesas, Arm & PiC VS Code, VS Studio, MPLab, IAR compilers/debuggers 11-30 seconds No specific standard at VF and not previously enforced. If it's longer than I can see on a page at once. Not normally done in past at VF, if done then informal/ad-hoc when needed. 20 40 40 I like the challenges in solving problems and learning new things. Also being able to be creative. Dealing with poorly written legacy code, missing documentations. Very little, some of my team use it and we discuss it, but I haven't actively used it My team are starting to use TDD so I wish/need to understand it more Show
9.7 42 C# C, C++, Java, Perl, PowerShell, bash, Javascript/Typescript NUnit, VisualStudio built-in stuff I took a great TDD course over a decade ago, used to do TDD, now occasionally almost do TDD, but not regularly. With great difficulty. Unit testing not included in the code base, mostly; impractical to retrofit. I often change some small piece of complex calculations, validating results is hard. For more re-usable, general, new components, I unit test. Windows (desktop, some embedded stuff), and other embedded platforms (with no OS). mostly Visual Studio, some IaR embedded workbench, some Android Studio. 31-60 seconds Follow existing conventions and/or do what makes sense. I notice that a section in a function forms a logical step that could be separated out. I asked once for a code review here, got nothing. No one has ever asked me to do code review here. 6 2 2 Creativity: I enjoy being responsible for good ideas that bless others in appreciable ways. Those intractable portions of frameworks that are ill-documented and/or do not work as they should. Code a test that fails, write the code it tests so that it passes, then refactor, move on. I might learn some helpful tips/tools for being able to do more TDD, or possible DI/IoC for apps. Show
11 10 C# C, C++, Java, Matlab, LabView, VHDL/Verilog None Originally a test engineer, then design engineer working with hardware, then joined this company and programmed in C#, then C and then Java and finally on Android for a year before becoming a manager type. We have application and test engineer run validation tests on the product. Our products from bare metal C, windows embedded using C++ to Windows running hybrid C++/C#, Android IAR compiler, Visual studio, Android studio, Borland C++ 11-30 seconds Non-existent or changes depending on lead software developer Functions are too long when an entry level programmer cannot understand them by inspection. Lead software developer would review my subversion check-ins and send back code review comments. 5 2 3 Cool things can be made to happen if you have the right hardware! Waiting for hardware. Nothing I can let go of being an individual contributor even though I'm a manager... Show
12 20 C++ C Java C# None My current position is the first one that had an official build machine. In my previous positions release builds were made on developer's machines. It is tested manually by others by following test plans. Prior to others testing it, I perform manual tests of my own to verify functionality. We have multiple target systems but my current system is Android on top of Linux. Android Studio Under 10 seconds We don't have any formalized coding standards. I have expectations that are generally followed. If I have to scroll or the functionality is not immediately clear to me. I perform code reviews on each check in and provide guidance for improvements. 70 15 15 Designing eloquent solutions that are efficient and easy to understand by the next developer. Making significant changes to existing code that is not clear and understandable. I understand the overall concept of writing tests first followed by the code to make them pass. I want to understand in depth how TDD works and if it makes sense for our team. Show
14 3 Java Python, C++, C, Prolog, Scala Maven I am currently an Application Engineer with my company 10 credits away from my CS degree. I will be transitioning into the Software Dev team next year. I had a SW dev course that used Maven as a testing platform for all our Java and JS code for a web app project. Test functions were written for each new code piece prior to development. Not sure. Not sure what the team is currently using. 5-30 minutes Not currently on the team. When it performs more than one function. Not currently on the team. 70 0 30 The creative problem solving process. Seeing your work functioning is very rewarding. The tedious nature of cryptic syntax and deciphering convoluted or ambiguous code. A software development methodology that puts functional expectations first through testing. Learn about TDD to ensure I am on board w/ expectations. Taking SW Testing @CSU this Spring. Show
1 8 Java c#, c++, python None I like board games. Manually by hand or by giving the code to others in the company. Unsure as well. Android studio Under 10 seconds It must build and we try to make changes function as the should. When it becomes confusing. Minimum and stylistic. We have pretty large and infrequent commits. 30% 20% 50% I get to create something at the end of the day. Solving problems efficiently is really pleasing. It can become frustrating to deal with code that is convoluted. It is a methodology to program more effectively and efficiently. It would save us a lot of time and effort to put this process in place. Show
1 4 Java C#, C/C++, Python none I'm from Texas and went to Colorado for school. I have two cats and they are my pride and joy. I like to play video games, hang out with friends, and do crafts. I test code manually by running the program and performing different behaviors. unsure Android Studio, Visual Studio, SVN 11-30 seconds unsure When it can't fit in the window. They are informal comments made after code is submitted 50 25 25 It's like a puzzle. There is also some creativity in how to approach a problem. I don't like manually testing code. It makes testing less painful and tedious in the long run. My company is encouraging this class but I'm also looking forward to having better testing practices Show
1 20 C C++, C#, assembly Ceedling, NUnit Most experience in programming in C/C++ for Embedded systems. Started programming in C# about 1 year ago. Test cases are written in Ceedling for an Embedded C project, and NUnit for a C# project. Note that sometimes the test cases are written "after the fact". Additional tests done by QA after a release candidate is ready. It is a two Embedded processor system, one runs code written in C, the other in C# running on WinCE. Debugger, simulator, demo code, test harnesses, lab tools. Under 10 seconds This is a legacy product which unfortunately does not follow a specific coding standard. Usually when it goes beyond 150 lines; when there is repeated code that can be grouped. If code reviews are done (if at all) they are informal. 50 25 25 I believe developing software is actually really fun. Legacy code touched by many engineers who btw no longer work at the company... Been using it for about 1 year. It is great to give confidence when something has changed or added. Never had a formal training. I do believe it is very helpful to prevent bugs to be found late. Show

Unit tests, integration tests (including hardware in the loop) Target system is a multi-processor system with several ARM boards. VSCode, WSL, Rust Analyzer 11-30 seconds Rust - mostly use rust's built in tools C++ - mostly based on MISRA standards (I think) When it does more than one thing or is more than a few lines long. Continuous reviews as part of mob programming practice 15 35 50 I like the creativity and problem solving that it requires. And I like building cool things! Most of the overhead such as meetings and planning (although I know they're important) Ideally the process is write a test that fails and then update the code to get it to pass. My whole team was signed up for it. Show
0 10 C++ C++/C, python, rust C++unit, Qunit, google test, boost unit test, pytest I have a variety of hobbies which range from outdoors to on computers. Test in layers starting with unit tests. Then go up to from component test, integration tests, system, and release tests. Embedded system communicating with PC. VS code and rust. 1-5 minutes Pretty standard I get lost in the length. What reviews? 50 40 10 The ability to take useless HW and make it do something. It can be frustrating to get things to work properly. Make sure you have well defined tests before trying to solve the problem. The company signed me up. Show
0 2 Rust C/C++, Python None I am a Biomedical engineering major who graduated June 2021. Though I have taken CSE classes, I am still relatively new to programming and embedded systems. With my limited experience, I look forward to learning from this training. Applying test driven development, we first write a failing unit test to drive writing production code features until the unit test passes. We refactor or repeat the process and write HIL integration and verification tests using Gherkin and Cucumber. The current target is a 2 GB NVIDIA Jetson Nano. VSCode, Github Under 10 seconds Currently our team does not have an official Rust coding standard. A function is too long when it encapsulates multiple processes and purposes for the system. Following mob programming software development, our team has real time code review. 35 60 5 Problem solving and ability to create new possibilities and capabilities that seem like "magic". Sometimes to be better at SW dev, you must sacrifice your time to enjoy other aspects of life. I understand and try to apply the general concepts of TDD. I'd like to improve my TDD abilities. I'm new to embedded systems and programming. I'd like to improve my ability to write quality tests. Show
1 5 C C++, Python BoostTest Embedded engineer from Ireland who is tired of using compilers from 1989 Mainly using end-to-end and functional tests Battery management system Clion, vim, gdb, openocd, git, compiler explorer 11-30 seconds No official standard When it becomes unclear what the function does. Pull requests are made per feature change. One approver actively working on the project is required 60 20 20 Getting to architect+implement+maintain systems. I feel few other engineering disciplines do all 3 Embedded Software Development feels years behind in terms of tools, testing, process quality,etc Write the test first Won a competition and I think tdd could be a more enjoyable way to write software Show
