Senior Software Engineer at MatMaCorp. Currently working on embedded systems.
I've used pretty much every technique over the years, including formal "waterfall" specs for government contracts, shops that "just wing it" informally, and modern Agile techniques.
I've used agile practices informally over the years, and recently did some contract work at shops that strongly emphasized agile techniques under the guidance of certified Scrum masters.
I'm particularly interested in testing life-critical systems, and in the long run, AI. One of my jobs was to write an automated testing system to help structural engineers check their calculations. A software bug could result in a collapsed building, so we took the job very seriously.
I don't recall. Probably Meetup.
Coder since, um, forever. Prone to telling stories of punch cards, but long-term career goal is QA for AI.
