Course code: CIR-1
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
python, C++, C#, assembly
Unit test harnesses:
I am a ARM SoC firmware engineer, focused primarily on USB-centered product. I also spent about 7 years living in China.
Test practice now:
1 - unit tests of modules using embunit; 2 - system integration tests with real-world stimuli; 3 - compliance tests
ARM Cortex M0+ -based SoC
Keil armcc for target and unit test builds
gcc for unit test builds
eclipse for IDE
bullseye for coverage
python for misc tools

We have it published internally; basics like C-standard version, symbol naming, commenting are covered.
Function too long:
> 100 lines
our *intention* is a codecollaborator review for every SVN commit; but it tends to be at most a review for every feature developed/bug fixed
Favorite thing about dev:
It's fun make something work that did not before, like building something 'ex nihilo' with Lego when I was a kid. Not only is there the challenge to be creative, but also to be efficient. And with embedded work, you work with something physical.
Least favorite thing about dev:
Not enough time - no time to experiment, innovate. Not enough inclusion in the path forward.
I read your book a few years ago and applied a rudimentary TDD w/ embunit on the last library I have developed over the past year.
Why are you attending:
To ask you some follow-up questions on TDD w/ the perspective of having used it on production code for 1 year.
