A lean workflow alleviates the mental burden of complex processes and allows higher productivity. It is sometimes possible to achieve greater levels of efficiency by going back to the basics and simply using ASCII. Tim will demonstrate how he achieves linearity in writing specifications, implementing functionality in multiple languages and unit testing with a simple text editor and the Linux terminal.
Tim currently works for Mueller Co. on the system architecture and firmware for distributed IoT systems that communicate over cellular connections. Specifically he’s working on low power battery run embedded RTU’s that are expected to function for 5 to 15 years untouched.
