Course code: WEB-11
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
Java, Python, C/C++, VHDL
Unit test harnesses:
None. Throughout the college I never wanted my potential employees to push me into the Software Test roles.
I have been deployed as a field engineer in Saudi Arabia for 2 years, thus all my college coding skills are rather rusty. My team is currently working with LabVIEW which is not really programming but the TDD concepts apply and we use them.
Test practice now:
I am yet to start working with the code.
National Instruments CompactRIO platform, (ARM processors and other controllers in the future)
National Instruments LabVIEW platform
Have not been exposed to it yet
Function too long:
Haven't had any yet
Favorite thing about dev:
I like the challenge and the joy that comes with finding a neat solution.
Least favorite thing about dev:
The overhead time before a single line is written (especially relevant when you are working on a simple system that uses both microprocessor and integrated FPGA fabric)
It is supposed to improve the development time overall and make the code safer and more reliable - important in the industrial solutions, not so much for startups.
Why are you attending:
I dont know much about testing code at all - this is my personal motivation.
It is also a part of my job progression path. Although it was preferred I chose some other internal training, I decided to push for this one.
