With over 19 years of experience in software testing, I'm sharing my knowledge on Udemy.  From working on Xbox to web testing educational software for Committee For Children, I have a breadth of testing experience.  In addition to teaching the tools, I also bring real life experience into my lessons.

I've used BDD testing embedded Linux firmware.  I've used agile principles to create test automation step by step with feature development.  I've created multiple pipelines to run tests with Continuous Delivery systems.

From C# to Python to Javascript, I've tested across multiple languages, testing frameworks, and cloud services.

I hope to share what I've learned and what I'm learning with everyone here.
