Course code: NIELSEN-1
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
C (in the past) - I don't code at work
Other programming languages:
Unit test harnesses:
My team uses Junit for Java.
I currently lead a team of software developers who code backend systems in Java. I was an Electrical Engineer in college and used C before. I think I can learn the concepts and bring them to my team even if it's a different programming language.
Test practice now:
My team uses unit tests, and we are developing fully automated integration tests. We also use simulators or Jmeter for load testing.
Jboss in a VM
My team uses Eclipse or Jboss developer studio

Don't officially have one, but one of my senior developers has started reviewing code and suggesting standards as we go along.
Function too long:
When you can't break it down any further into something that is a self-
One person reviews code and provides feedback. We don't do this often, but we are trying to get in the habit of doing so in a more agile manner.
Favorite thing about dev:
Logical approach to solving a problem.
Least favorite thing about dev:
Spending hours to find where the bug is. Spending a lot of time trying to get the environment working, rather than the business logic.
Create test first, then code. Make a failing test, then get a test to pass, then refactor code to get all tests to work.
Why are you attending:
I want to learn about TDD concepts, so that I can understand the benefits, the methodology, and bring back the concepts to my team.
