Course code: WEB-19
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
Unit test harnesses:
Most of my work currently involves wireless communication stacks.
Test practice now:
Unit tests for small modules.
System tests, generally using a PC tool automating one end of the communication link.
Nordic nRF52 series (ARM Cortex-M4)
Visual Studio for PC test tools.
In house coding standard
Function too long:
When it does more than one thing, when it is hard to nail down what the function actually does when documenting it.
Formal part of our software development process, using Gerrit. All code requires at least one reviewer to approve before integration.
Favorite thing about dev:
The flexibility! You can take the same hardware and create an entirely different functionality just by changing the software.
Least favorite thing about dev:
Flexibility is a double edged sword. It is easy to do quick modifications to make a software design do something it was not intended to, introducing unintended consequences.
Read the book "Test Driven Development for Embedded C"
Why are you attending:
I want to reduce how often we are required to perform full system level testing, so small changes can be validated without requiring a large amount of effort.
