Course code: HUNT-1
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
Unit test harnesses:
My formal training is in psychology, but upon encountering massive monotony, I went back to an old passion of mine and made a career out of software development.
Test practice now:
Unit tests, integration tests and automated UI tests.
Visual Studio 2015, SQL Server 2016
We use generally accepted conventions, but not much in the way of an 'official' coding standard.
Function too long:
The instant it doesn't fit on the screen without scrolling.
We code in groups ("mobs"), so code is constantly peer reviewed by 1-5 other developers at all times.
Favorite thing about dev:
I love the constant enhancements and improvements in the world of technology. I love being a lifelong learner, being challenged, and overcoming those challenges.
Least favorite thing about dev:
Almost the same as why I love it: There is so MUCH to learn, and so much change, that it becomes VERY tough to keep up with new techniques and tools.
We work hard to use TDD in our day-to-day development. Sometimes we forget and write tests after the fact, but usually, code doesn't get written until we have a failing test to show how it should work.
Why are you attending:
1) I love learning from experts. I know that my TDD skills can use some improvement. 2) This is an opportunity to work side-by-side with Hunter's firmware engineers. They will know the embedded C stuff, I'm more familiar with the TDD side of things.
