Course code: SIOUX-1
  • Years with company: 7
  • Years programming: 5 (but not anymore, I am a Test Architect)
  • Primary programming language: C
  • Other programming languages: C++, and scripting like ruby, tcl, perl
  • Unit test harnesses: I advocate gTest& gMock (in my current project) but do not use them myself
  • Something else: 15 years ago I switched from programming to testing (automating a lot in perl, tcl, ruby) and now I am a Test Architect. In my current role/project I improve testing (of both developers and testers) at a customer .Because I advocate TDD and unit testing, I think it would be could to experience it myself. Besides that I provide test related courses and now and then I give presentations and workshops on test related conferences.
  • Test practice now: not writing code anymore. test code is mostly written in ruby/python, etc.
  • Target system: lithographic wafer scanner (in previous project: electron microscope, X-Ray scanner, professional harddisk recorder)
  • Dev tools: not anymore
  • Build time: 30-60 minutes
  • Coding standard: n/a
  • Function too long: it should fit on a screen (improves readability and understandibility)
  • Code reviews: n/a
  • Code time: 0
  • Test time: 0
  • Debug time: 0
  • Favorite thing about dev: I like testing software ;)
  • Least favorite thing about dev: n/a
  • Tdd knowledge: I know some theoretical items, and advocate it.
  • Why are you attending: As I am advocating TDD in my current project (and my previous project), I would like to experience it myself, so I know what I am talking about.
