Course code: WEB-30
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
Started on FORTRAN did C for a while, did just a touch of C++ then years of Java with all types of scripting Perl/shell/html etc.
lately Swift and iOS.
Unit test harnesses:
JUnit, touched Nunit; now focusing on Apples XCT Xcode test.
I’m a sailor, a dog person, I’m married to Tracy we have no kids and hope to retire soon.
Test practice now:
Much of the last iOS app I wrote was 90% UI and so it was constantly running in simulator.
IOS and Mac. Maybe Mac servers.
What Unix tools I can remember
Xcode simulator and instruments tool
Under 10 seconds
Hmm, I guess it’s following along the lines of a C based std. but way more wordy than the old days. Heck I just had to fix some misspelled words that broke the Apple compiler so bad it gave the wrong error messages
Function too long:
When I’ve got to scroll the screen.
I’m currently a team of one.
Except on a side project. Pair programming with Lance Kind and TDD.Academy.
Favorite thing about dev:
Building things. That feeling of dopamine when it all comes togeather on a screen.
Least favorite thing about dev:
Trying to remember one thousand details that are only needed for this one little bit of code that will be forgotten as soon as I can get it to work right.
Kent beck and others invented it to make my life with code so much easier. If only I’d use it -ALL the time.
Why are you attending:
I’m interested in how an expert teaches TDD and all the extras of a hard domain today.
