Course code: 8TH-1
  • Years with company: 2
  • Years programming: 2.5
  • Primary programming language: Ruby
  • Other programming languages: Clojure
  • Unit test harnesses: I've never heard this term. rspec, clojure.test, speclj...?
  • Something else: I love jazz music
  • Test practice now: TDD often, but not always
  • Target system: N/A
  • Dev tools: vim, tmux
  • Build time: 11-30 seconds
  • Coding standard: Big believer in unit tests; small, focused classes; SOLID; etc.
  • Function too long: When test setup becomes unwieldy
  • Code reviews: Often done individually in pull requests on GitHub, but occasionally we get together for group discussion around some code
  • Code time: 30
  • Test time: 50
  • Debug time: 20
  • Favorite thing about dev: Solving problems for people; curious challenges; mix of analytic and creative thinking
  • Least favorite thing about dev: Not knowing where to start when attempting to dive into a new, large subject
  • Tdd knowledge: We focus quite a bit on it at 8th Light ;)
  • Why are you attending: I'm most interested in the word "embedded." I'm curious about software beyond web applications (the only context in which I've developed software).
