Course code: DYNON-1
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
C#, Python, Lua, PHP
Unit test harnesses:
CppUTest, Visual Studio Unit Testing Framework
I was recently appointed software architect to start tackling our technical debt problems.
I really enjoy writing software and want to be great at it. I always love learning new things. I would write code even if I didn't get paid to do it. So please push me during the training!
Test practice now:
Roughly: 40% via unit test, 30% via manual testing, 10% via our Lua integration, and 20% likely not covered at all. This discipline is horrible, and I need help to change it.
C++/OpenGL on Linux target with 1Ghz CPU and 1GB RAM
gcc, gdb, make, QtCreator, SmartSVN, CppUTest, SciTools Understand, google perftools
I wrote one, but the team doesn't follow it.
Function too long:
When it is over 10-15 lines, tries to do too many things, or is not testable.
We don't do them, but I really wish that we did.
Favorite thing about dev:
The puzzle aspect, the challenge, creating value for people, the fact that it can always be improved.
Least favorite thing about dev:
Technical friction, bugs, untested software, wasting time debugging, accumulation of technical debt, flaky tools, wasting time debating with co-workers, dealing with people who don't want to (or don't know how) to change.
That I want to do it, have tried it and it has worked for me, but I was unable to scale it to my every day work. That it is a different way of thinking for me, but I want to be better at it. Red/Green/Refactor is the way to go.
Why are you attending:
To write better software. If we don't improve as a team, our company will die or I will quit. I want to support my teammates. I have been asking for something like this for a while now and am very excited about it. So thanks in advance!
