I am a person who enjoys understanding every aspect of the technology. I like also sports but as I have very few free time I usually go to the gym. I try to be proactive and I never give up once a problem comes up.
Test practice now:
Good question... In every company I have worked for, testion is a recurrent word that appears but, because of the tight delivery times the testing has been always avoided. Here, in ACLARA, our team leader is trying to change this. I had the chance to use CPPTEST but not in production.
Only about one? Right now the Renesas IC is a bit unknown. I now it is a 32 bits system, its endianess, some aspects of its configuration using its registers, peripherals... But all this, or most of all, is handled using a HAL layer.
Here in ACLARA we use IAR compiler for the target and MinGW for the tests using CMAKE to handle the tests and to build each of them. I like to code using vim (using cygwin now, because the use of Windows is mandatory) or VS CODE.
For testing, it should take just a few minutes (I am not currently using the CMAKE testing environment that is being used)
Function too long:
I try to use the cyclomatic complexity as metric. I try to have only one return point if it is possible. Besides, if I think the function is complex I try to break it down just thinking a bit
There are not code reviews right now. I have worked before using pair programming method and it worked well.
Favorite thing about dev:
Everything. I like how developing SW helps you to think in a different way. Finding a solution to a problem or implementing a feature makes me feel good as I see the code working. I like to find the best way to reach to a solution.
Least favorite thing about dev:
Sometimes you cannot understand everything. I don't like to have blind points... Because, usually those points turn out into serious problems.
Just some theory. I think that is pretty hard to use it, or use it well, with the preassure and tight deadlines we have in our sector. But I am willing to see it being applied just to grant that our code is developed properly.
Why are you attending:
I want to learn how to organize and reach to our goals in a better way. I have been following Barr Group for years and I think I could learn a lot from your trainigs. That is why I recommended Barr Group's trainings to the company.
