I help international companies overcome the challenges of software test automation and mobile app testing. My professional experience is in software testing and test automation, starting in 2002 as an intern. My goal is to change the stigma attached to testers and testing by providing opportunities to skilled testers, while mentoring the next generation of test professionals. I have a Baccalaureus Information Technology degree from Cape Town University of Technology, as well as other product-related certifications. Ten years ago, I played a key role in the formation of the software quality assurance division in DVT, which now has over 250 test professionals. Four years ago, I was also instrumental in starting DVT’s Global Testing Centre, based in Cape Town South Africa. The GTC specialises in test automation, performance and functional testing. On average, 50 projects run in parallel using either SCRUM or KANBAN.
