Course code: PRAQ-1
Years with company:
8 (In addition to programming at home)
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
python, java, c++, c#
Unit test harnesses:
cunit, cmocka, ctest
I have a Masters degree in Electronics: Communication and Radio Systems.
Currently managing the Software Department for Nordic Semiconductor in Oslo in addition to being one of the developers.
Test practice now:
Ideally before writing the code, but I do write the unit tests after writing the code. I also try to make a test to run the changes on target device.
Keil, gcc, cmake
We have adapted our own coding standard and it is close to misra c but not as restricted.
Function too long:
When you have problems explaining the functionality of the function
We have to have a code review before the code is pushed to master
Favorite thing about dev:
Sometimes you have interesting problems that need to be solved, and I like solving problems and debugging issues.
Interesting conversations with colleagues.
Least favorite thing about dev:
Having too many people working on the same code and maintaining different products with a lot of branches. Spends a lot of time in merges and resolving conflicts.
TDD helps limiting the amount of code required to achieve the specification of the goal. No "dead" code and verify if any of the existing functionality changes.
Why are you attending:
A lot of colleagues have attended previous TDD courses and recommended doing it, especially since it was you holding the course.
I would also like to get a bigger motivation for writing the tests before the implementation.
