Presentations


Presentations on software testing, agility and teamwork

You’ll most often find me sharing experience that I’ve had in our projects, or that I’ve gained working with customers. I like to talk about agile processes, testing, test automation, design for test automation, usability and communication. I focus on how we’ve dealt with conditions that aren’t always ideal and I like to present pragmatic approaches.
