Course code: BARR-5
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
C (microcontrollers) and Python (host code)
Other programming languages:
C++, have used many more in the past, starting to learn Elixir
Unit test harnesses:
cpputest, cmockery, unity, Google Test, Boost Test, unittest (Python)
I am currently working my own toy programming language and writing a compiler from scratch as a learning exercise. I started with ply and lex/yacc, but neither really supports my chosen language syntax (white-space significant).
Test practice now:
Unit tests using TDD where practical and system-level feature/regression tests. For full system development, I often perform system-level fuzzing tests.
Varies by customer, but often Cortex-M class microcontrollers
C: gcc + openocd + eclipse, Python: PyCharm, cmake. Visual Studio on Windows.
Under 10 seconds
Varies by customer
Function too long:
When you cannot explain its purpose on one line or when it needs comments in the body to explain how it works.
Infrequent by others as my consulting is often sole-developer for a product or specific features. Lint and -Wall -Wextra -pedantic are my friends.

Favorite thing about dev:
The challenge and continuous learning. Working with people to create great solutions.
Least favorite thing about dev:
Fighting with tools and poorly written code. Bureaucracy. Solving the same problem over and over.
I use it frequently.
Why are you attending:
Possibly teaching it in the future!
