  • Favorite thing about dev: I love having the ability to solve problems using software. Additionally, since software is never done and always changing, you're constantly looking for ways to deliver additional value to customers and streamline what's already written.
  • Least favorite thing about dev: From the product side of things, it's the same ole story, I can't have it created for me fast enough :)
  • Tdd knowledge: My main experience with tdd is from the product side of things, so I have exposure to writing user stories with both the main success and failure paths.
