Course code: ZOO-1
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
Unit test harnesses:
Worked previously as an Aerodynamicist. Joined Zoox as a software engineer--slight career change.
Test practice now:
In-house guidelines right now.
Function too long:
Number of lines is a good indicator. Some standards suggest (I think) 50-80 lines. Also if the 'function' is performing multiple 'functions' that could logically be separated into their own units.
Reviews are done by team-members in my local group, or outside the group if there is a better expert for the subject.
Favorite thing about dev:
Constant problem solving.
Least favorite thing about dev:
Some products/programming areas are boring--I'd be bored programming marketing websites for a living, for example. But honestly, I haven't been professionally programming that long, so new and fresh is good compared to the old career so far.
Why are you attending:
Replacing a coworker in the class. Just found out the Friday before.
