Course code: WEB-30
  • Years with company: 1
  • Years programming: 2-3
  • Primary programming language: C++
  • Other programming languages: C, Python, Perl
  • Unit test harnesses: None
  • Something else: I am a recent graduate of UMBC, University of Maryland, Baltimore County
  • Test practice now: We have a suite of apps that can be deployed for simulation purposes on a Desktop PC as well as on our target system.
  • Target system: We develop radar detection systems fighter jet and test against that
  • Dev tools: Visual Studio, UltraEdit, BeyondCompare, MULTI
  • Build time: 1-5 minutes
  • Coding standard: Honestly, I'm not very familiar with our coding standard as it hasn't been stressed very much in my time here
  • Function too long: When I have to constantly refer back to previous sections of the function to determine the flow of the function
  • Code reviews: We don't have a consistent for of code review. Sometimes a senior member of our team will review my code, but usually all of our team contributes their changes to a collective baseline and the baseline is tested overall.
  • Code time: 15
  • Test time: 20
  • Debug time: 65
  • Favorite thing about dev: I like the challege of breaking down code to figure out what its doing and I appreciate the ability to create code to serve as a solution to some problem.
  • Least favorite thing about dev: I don't like the opaqueness of testing, where it can become increasingly difficult to accurately determine where things are going wrong.
  • Tdd knowledge: Not very much
  • Why are you attending: I'm interested in hearing about another approach to software development, I also hope to increase my knowledge and develop my expertise in software development processes
