Course code: WEB-18
  • Years with company: 0
  • Years programming: 18
  • Primary programming language: python
  • Other programming languages: c, c++, bash, java
  • Unit test harnesses: python's unittest, junit, pytest, nose, cppunit, cunit
  • Something else: Though I am currently writing software, my training is in Mechanical Engineering. Programming skills have always complimented other job responsibilities
  • Test practice now: pytest is my go to lately.
  • Target system: I tend to work in systems testing lately, with a lesser portion of my development on posix environments
  • Dev tools: gcc, pytest, cppunit, pycharms, jenkins
  • Build time: 1-5 minutes
  • Coding standard: My personal standards are all that I should comment on here. I believe that code should be literate, i.e. readable, and that the processes in play should support code scrutiny.
  • Function too long: When my description of a function starts to include a compound statement, I become critical. When that description becomes multiple sentences I think about refactoring seriously.
  • Code reviews: I work in an environment in which a minimum of two colleagues have to review code changes. These reviews range in content from critiques regarding readability to compliance with safety standards and requirement satisfaction.
  • Code time: 35
  • Test time: 35
  • Debug time: 30
  • Favorite thing about dev: I enjoy the development of working tools and products. These are finite goals within a project, serving greater purposes withing a program. I enjoy honing and using a craft.
  • Least favorite thing about dev: I do occasionally get frustrated with poorly documented and unreliable code.
  • Tdd knowledge: I have practiced a somewhat permissive form of TDD for many years, and am now working toward enforcing a consistent TDD approach in my development practices.
  • Why are you attending: In order to smooth my understanding of TDD in embedded C, which I have read personally in the past, and to expand my wider TDD skills with a deeper knowledge of the practice. That's the real answer, I'm that exciting.
