What are your favorite ways to iterate on your changes?
I recently installed and commissioned a Duet WiFi on a 3D printer, and it went smoothly. I eventually want to contribute to firmware improvements and features, and so I'd like to learn about how you approach exercising and testing the changes you make day-to-day.
What do you do to make the edit-build-deploy-run-analyze workflow efficient for you?
You missed out the most important steps: "design" and "design review" come before "edit".
If you do design and design review as part of your iterative day-to-day work, I can see why you wouldn't want to answer the question, but I can't see why you wouldn't read and understand the question.

Thanks for trying. That link was my first link, and it doesn't mention anything relating to efficient workflows.
I read the front matter for these repos, and while the build instructions are the closest I've seen, they still don't make recommendations for low-effort iterative experimentation.
- RepRapFirmware boils down to "use Eclipse" once you've installed and configured the cross compiler and source.
- DuetWebControl boils down to "use
build.shand upload the tarballs"
When I start fixing the performance problems in DWC, I'll write a wiki page about it and we'll see if the ivory tower responds favorably.

@wireddown I think you may receive a more detailed response when David has finished up presenting at the TCT show which is currently on. Please show some patience.
