Most useful learnings:
How to do a Mock to simulate the hardware for a Device Driver
Concepts v exercises:
Presentation v discussion:
Possibly a slightly better "flow" somehow. Maybe also a better agenda upfront with an idea of what we will be doing at what time (roughly), helps to schedule breaks etc.
I thought the exercises were ideal
Professional yet informal. Knowledgeable and easier to talk to.
Bring it on!
I have also ready started the process of writing unit tests before a new block of code. It actually seems to work!
Challenges to applying:
Only persuading some managers that more time upfront will cause a huge time saving later on. Most of them agree in principle anyway.
The cork board (parking lot) for dumping comments / questions worked well. The online dojo worked especially well. Nothing like being able to write code and see the results within seconds when on a course.
Legacy code workshop:
Recommend to others:
Only if improved
