A Trek to Singapore

I traveled to Singapore this week to attend a few meetings and conduct some training. Since it is rather far from the US, I managed to spend an extra day here.

Based on previous experience, a metro will really help move things along (pun intended). I also took this picture during a... Continue reading »

A Testament to VectorCAST Openness

I visited a long term customer in Toronto this week that has developed a really sophisticated test environment built on top of VectorCAST/Ada, VectorCAST/C++, and multiple different target RSPs. They have been a customer for more than 10 years and have built a really interesting test environment which allows them to automatically run the same tests on a variety of live hardware boards. Their infrastructure provides similar functionality to that provided by... Continue reading »

What NOT to do during test creation

Are there designs that you should avoid using in unit tests? The answer is going to vary depending on your particular source code, but setting up your tests carefully will make them easier to maintain! If you are interested in some examples, James Carr came up with a list of test anti-patterns.
