Engineers’ Talk: Riding Jenkins with Oleg Nenashev – MES027

Jenkins with Oleg NenashevEngineers’ Talk: Riding Jenkins with Oleg Nenashev

Today I’m happy to introduce another presenter of the Embedded Testing conference in Munich. I got acquainted with Oleg Nenashev already in the first minutes of the conference. We’re sitting aside of each other. He was working for his Jenkins presentation.

Oleg is a 27 year old engineer from St. Petersburg in Russia. Although he has started as a hardware-engineer he’s mainly engaged on the software side. With his presentation Integrating Jenkins with verification flows of Embedded Systems he has introduced himself as a continuous integration specialist. He’s currently working for CloudBees in Neufchâtel in Switzerland.

Oleg has become responsible for testing hardware in an automatized way already in 2008. He get in touch with it from the very beginning. Later he provided several plugins before he gots elected as core-developer. Meanwhile we have more than 1000 plugins. And it has undergone a redefinition from a pure Continuous-Integration tool towards a more general, more framework like automation server.

Engineers’ Talk: HW- and SW-Integrator Jürgen Salm – MES025

[podlove-episode-web-player publisher="823" post_id="823"]

Jürgen SalmIntegrate hardware and software with Jürgen Salm

It’s an ever lasting story in Embedded Systems: Integrate hardware and software. You need to combine a new piece of hardware together with new software. That’s the time you need engineers like my today’s guest – Jürgen Salm.

Jürgen has a proven track of experience as SW-developer. He’s running his own zoo of Unix- and Linux-machines at his home-place. At work however he’s engaged as SW-tester and mainly HW- and SW-integrator. Jürgen is working for one of the big mobile equipment manufacturers in Germany.

Jürgen is a constant source of ideas about improvement and he has tons of experience you can participate from. As a former SW-developer Jürgen instantly provides the feedback the author of software will understand. More over he does regularly not only provide feedback about the failure, but also directly points to the failing component. Very often I have experienced by myself that he’s already pointing to the wrong algorithm directly.

We’re highlighting the daily problems when integrating immature hardware with even more immature software. The challenges when working together with multi-sited SW-development teams. And of course the mother of all questions: How to improve collaboration between developers and integrators.

Stay with me and enjoy the interview.

Engineers’ Talk – DevOp and Tester Vassilis Rizopoulos – MES023

Vassilis RizopoulosEngineers’ Talk: DevOp and Tester Vassilis Rizopoulos

You remember episode 20 where I mentioned the Embedded Testing conference in Munich. One of the presentation was about Applying DevOps Principles to Software-Hardware Integration Test. Vassilis Rizopoulus explained details about DevOps, their tooling, automated testing and the mandatory environment.

I was excited and we have had an extraordinary talk after his contribution. Some days later I asked him for an interview. I am sure that Vassilis’ ideas and thoughts will be helpful for a lot of engineers out there. Especially engineers who wanted to try something knew, but who might need some trigger to change their way of thinking and habit.

Vassilis has been dabbling in software engineering close to two decades by now. In this time what started as a hobby of a would-be electrical engineer became full time occupation. He specializes in software productivity engineering, a catch all term for the role that integrates the development environment, test automation, continuous integration and deployment, devops and general behind the scenes tooling that enables software teams to concentrate on actually producing useful software.

Hunting bugsEngineers’ Talk: Mr. Bug-Hunting: Bero Brekalo

Talking about bug-hunting has become a regular topic in this podcast. However there are tons of different persons out there using their own approach to handle bugs. All of them might have different attitudes, different approaches and different experiences. And it might be of interest to get more familiar with them and the details they can tell us.

Within today’s episode we have Bero Brekalo as a guest for interview. Bero is one of my very first listeners not directly related to me. We got acquainted after release of Episode 2. We have had a long mail-discussion about debugging, our different and common understanding. Especially Bero’s very interesting debugging tools made me curious.
