  • Target system: TI 28335, MSP430
  • Dev tools: CCS6
  • Build time: 5-30 minutes
  • Coding standard: There is a SLB code standard, I am aware of it. Basically - write code you can describe meaningfully.
  • Function too long: It is too long if I cannot hold it's structure in my head (forget the beginning by the time I got to the end)

  • Debug time: 50
  • Favorite thing about dev: The process of creation, making the hardware do things
  • Least favorite thing about dev: Hard to say, it gets to my gut sometimes
  • Tdd knowledge: basic concept, really
  • Why are you attending: 60% - my metier required this course 40% - the idea of a software "testbench" is actually really cool, I wonder how useful it is in embedded environment. I am curious.
