Course code: WEB-31
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
ruby, C, java, vhdl, labview
Unit test harnesses:
only custom vhdl testbenches, a long time ago
I'm an electrical engineer, so I generally hand off my hardware after designing it to our embedded folks. I have programmed my own hardware in C in the past and want to get back to bringing up my own boards.
Test practice now:
The programming I do now is more scripting to analyze data and so it is generally running right in front of me and I am the consumer of the output, so my eyes are the test.
Various embedded MCU's.
TI's Code Composer Studio, Altium, matlab
Function too long:
Favorite thing about dev:
The quick development cycle. I don't have to send a design out to get fabricated, I just have to compile it.
Least favorite thing about dev:
My understanding is that it's defining the successful outputs of a function before the function is written. And that this approach would lend itself to simpler software architecture and collaboration between contributors.
Why are you attending:
I want to get more familiar with our product's code base and start bringing up my own boards, or at least refresh my skillset for doing so.
