With 12+ years of overall engineering experience I have found my passion in software test automation. In the process Python has become my favorite tool to work with. I graduated with a MS degree in Mechanical Engineering from San Jose State University, and got into the IT field of software test automation. I have as much passion for teaching as I do for learning. I hope to help students grow fast and advance in the field of software testing and automation.
