Course code: WEB-21
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
Unit test harnesses:
I am a Jr software engineer for Lionel, I do the production code for model trains.
Test practice now:
Depends on what is being tested, currently I build it, flash it the target device and test functionality or try to break it.
Otherwise I try to add a piece at a time, and test it as I go to see if it works with known input/outputs
I use several, AVR's, ARM, SNC, PICs
Atmel Studio, Notepad++, custom tools, SONiX36K compiler
N/A, essential if it works, it is fine
Function too long:
No idea, when it can be broken down smaller?
Favorite thing about dev:
I like solving puzzles and making things that do other things.
Least favorite thing about dev:
Its a love/hate with the frustration that can come with embedded system development. The frustration is annoying and tedious, but once I overcome something the dopamine hit is incredible.
Not much, going through your book is on this week's to do list.
Why are you attending:
Many embedded devs I respect recommend the course and I want to improve to their level.
