Summary

The future of IT industry? Simply brilliant… someday the car you drive, will be piloted by a very clever software, software which will be tested by me or someone like me and in that day you will be thankful that I am a software quality testing expert and I did a great job!

My vision about software testing is linked to the ability of software testing teams to become small developers or mini configurators, the ability to expand knowledge and to know a little bit of everything. A little coding, some knowledge of networking, system architecture, good understanding of the business processes!

I lead my software testing business with a very close attention to customer processes so we are able to create tests that will reflect the customer’s style of working, we will replace repetitive actions with creativity, we will use the scripting or coding knowledge to create automated scripts who will replace manual repetitive work.

Together we can automate and innovate more because I strongly believe that brain can be used for creation and machines for execution! My 16 years background in software quality testing & quality training facilitation and my customers testimonials – are my best arguments!
