Programming God Mantra
Stolen from Uncle Bob Martin Maybe we all strive to have that level of experience.
What’s up programmers, developers, and engineers of Level1Techs? What are you working on? What sort of job do you have? What do you enjoy working on? What’s your favorite programming language? What’s your favorite programming paradigm? What’s your favorite reference, book, or tool to assist you with programming? Do you enjoy web programming, systems programming, network programming, infrastructure programming, or a mix?
I’m hoping we can have a thread year round besides Devember and help each other with programming related questions and tasks that don’t involve their own thread.
I will start!
I am working on a deployment pipeline to build our code base and deploy it across 40 servers. The software has been altered from using MSBuild and MSDeploy to using .NET Core utilities. Containers are likely in the future, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.
I work as a Build/Release Engineer for a data analytics company. They call it DevOps Engineer here but it’s the same thing as B/R Eng.
I enjoy working on the infrastructure side of things. I’ve considered moving into embedded systems or operating system development but I really need to beef up my chops. I’ve been told that OS/RTOS development is boring, so I may just stay where I’m at lol.
My favorite programming language is probably (modern) C++ right now. I can’t use it for much but what little I can do is pretty cool.
Favorite paradigm is probably Declarative Programming. But I also like Object Oriented Design and Functional Programming.
My favorite book is Computer Science: Distilled. At a glance look at the common algorithms used in Computer Science and programming. Favorite tool is the Bash terminal emulator!
I enjoy a mix of things. My primary experience is web development and infrastructure development. I would love to get into systems programming but I need more networking and systems knowledge. Hoping to make the switch from Ops to Dev in a year or so. AMD is up the street
