Course code: BARR-8
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
Unit test harnesses:
Pytest, C# Unittest
involved in biomedical research, typically a combination of hardware and software. Historically mostly PC programming with some embedded, but embedded projects are increasing. I am an electrical engineer with mostly self-taught programming experience.
Test practice now:
No formal methods used regularly. Methods change depending on specific project and team members.
usually Code Composer Studio for embedded C projects
Under 10 seconds
varies with project
Function too long:
generally use page of text rule-of-thumb, or can no longer simply state what is does
Favorite thing about dev:
The general design aspect of it, seeing a project develop and become usable in solving a problem.
Least favorite thing about dev:
I guess the final stages or maintenance...taking care of the more trivial things
Basically, I have read some blog posts on it.
Why are you attending:
I'm looking to see if more formal techniques like TDD or Agile can be applied to our small group (research-oriented, mostly one-off prototypes). I want to improve my own skill sets and hopefully improve productivity.
