Course code: GE-3
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Visual Basic, LabView, C#
Other programming languages:
Unit test harnesses:
Software that I develop currently are small-medium applications for internal use. Automation tools, etc.
Test practice now:
Consequences of bugs are low because software is for internal use by a small group. Testing is limited. I led MeterMate group years ago, and we did peer reviews of ALL code changes, and some white box testing, but nothing too structured.
Generally Windows applications, but interested in meter firmware
Function too long:
Should be limited to a single "function" or operation. Generally should fit on one screen.
Author of change sits down with printout and explains changes to peer reviewer line by line.
Favorite thing about dev:
Breaking down problems into logical pieces. I get a lot of satisfaction from creating neat, well organized, and maintainable code that solves a real business need. I enjoy solving problems for others with software.
Least favorite thing about dev:
Documentation (other than code comments), spending too much time testing.
