  • Dev tools: vim, emacs, Eclipse
  • Build time: 11-30 seconds
  • Coding standard: the code must be clean!
  • Function too long: when it is difficult to follow; when it expresses too many ideas; when it expresses things at differing levels of abstraction; when it requires comments to help you understand its flow

  • Test time: 49
  • Debug time: 2
  • Favorite thing about dev: the satisfaction of seeing something work; the challenge of solving problems; the ability to incrementally craft elegant solutions through continual refactoring
  • Least favorite thing about dev: the tedium still associated with the assembly and configuration part of development. It's amazing how far we've come and yet how much BS we still put up with.
  • Tdd knowledge: terminals for the deaf and dumb, right?
  • Why are you attending: to learn from the greats
