Course code: BECK-1
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
c, c sharp
Unit test harnesses:
Home grown test harnesses. Starting to use Google Test.
Test practice now:
I do unit testing, integration testing, and if needed system testing. The verification teams do the majority of system testing. I always step through every line of new code in the debugger to check that it is behaving exactly like I intended it to behave. We have builds of the software that run in windows allowing us to do much of the testing without the real hardware.
The target system is a hematology analyzer. It drives stepper motors, valves, sensors, lasers, and other hardware. The data acquisition is complicated. Over 10 MB of data is collected for each specimen. There are many threads.
Our currently released product uses VxWorks Tornado, Green Hills Multi c++ compiler, Visual Studio, and Rational Rose.
Coding standards cannot be discussed on twitter. Not enough characters.
Function too long:
Anything over 10 lines of code needs to be closely looked at.
We do multi-pass inspections with at least 2 developers.
Favorite thing about dev:
Least favorite thing about dev:
Just the basics. I have not tried it.
