  • Favorite thing about dev: (difficult to express). I enjoy the rigor/discipline of s/w development. Have always liked adding intelligence to systems and never really tried to explain why. I started my career in a mix of h/w and s/w when microprocessor were new.
  • Least favorite thing about dev: Working with team-members that don't appreciate quality code and good practices/processes.
  • Tdd knowledge: Understand the broad concept.
  • Why are you attending: Invited by a peer and team leader. I've ALWAYS been an education/training advocate.
