  • Favorite thing about dev: I enjoy the problem solving aspect. There are always many solutions for an issue. Weighing the pros/cons of each and implementing the best is rewarding.
  • Least favorite thing about dev: Documentation for safety critical software can be time consuming.
  • Tdd knowledge: Very little. My understanding is that code is written in a manner such that it can be tested in a thorough manner (line coverage, unit tests, etc).
  • Why are you attending: I'm hopeful that it will reduce the time spent setting up and maintaining tests as well as allow for more thorough testing.
