Welcome to iTesting, a Blog written by Colin Cherry for anyone who has a passion for Software Testing. My aim is to provide personal insights into the many and varied challenges thrown up by the world within which Software Testing exists.
I have over 25 years of experience as a software testing professional, starting as a Unit/Integration/System Tester and progressing through the ranks to become a Program Test Director, Principal Test Consultant, Test Strategist, Coach and Mentor. I have worked in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the USA with engagements for companies of less than 100 people to those with hundreds of thousands, on budgets of less that $50k to more than $100m. I have worked in Agile, Iterative, Waterfall and completely haphazard environments, presented at countless Conferences, Special Interest Groups and Forums while also being published regularly in Industry magazines.
I have worked with federal and state-based government agencies, tier 1 and tier 2 banks, major telcos, electricity, gas and oil suppliers, transport, logistics and supply chain organisations, IT manufacturers/distributors and several global Consulting firms. I have been very fortunate in building a large network within the Software Testing community.
As at September 2016 I have written over 100 Blog posts and I have therefore decided to begin deleting those posts that have the lowest readership, ie the least popular ones. I have decided that there will now be a maximum of 101 Blog posts on the basis that Quality should always outweigh Quantity. I hope you agree with my sentiments.
