About the author

Martin Steen Nielsen holds degrees in Electronic Engineering and Computer Science. He has worked with unit testing of embedded software since 1999. Martin became hooked on automated module testing, when he saw how doing it made significant improvements in quality and stability of his own work. He invented the testape instrumenter in order to quick-launch new projects, and the testape framework as a kind of nursery in which he could maximize coverage without increasing test complexity.
