We have a culture of
regular time devoted to hackathons. We
can work on what we know is important or fun or challenging - we have free
reign to take on the projects that we are motivated to complete.
For my project, I am
working on classifying some of our test code.
What I have to do specifically is parse through each test file looking
for attributes in the code. The goal here
is to make a tool that does this so I never have to do it again.
I've been working on
this for a day now, and I am reminded why I want this tool. I have written TONS of code that opens a text
(type) file and goes through it line by line.
It is always tedious, slow and I always have to look up how to do these
basic tasks on the internet. Since I
only do this once every year or so, I forget the exact syntax to use and need a
But I got my tool
done yesterday and am making sure it works today. Then I want to move it from a command line to
a nice visualization that I can monitor for changes…
criticisms and complaints always welcome,
