Course code: WEB-24
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
I've used C++, python
Unit test harnesses:
I enjoy collecting vinyl records and I belong to an Olympic weightlifting club.
Test practice now:
A large part of our code is tested manually as part or a larger system.
We're starting to adapt unit testing and a small portion of our code is unit tested.
Gcc, PC simulators, VS code.
The coding standard is a little hard to follow and seemed to be setup before modern IDEs were available.
Function too long:
A function is considered too long when it does one more than one thing.
Code reviews are done before every patch is submitted. A developer isn't allowed to review their own patches.
Favorite thing about dev:
I liked seeing the code/projects I work on end up on devices that are used by customers around the world. I enjoy digging into bugs and trying to solve the issues for our customers.
Least favorite thing about dev:
The manual testing process and vague bug reports that are hard to track down to root causes.
I know TDD means developing tests first and that more time is spent up front so that less time is spent tracking down issues in the field.
Why are you attending:
We've started to adopt unit testing. I'm interesting in learning new strategies to help with this.
