Ben Visser

Profile picture of Ben

Ben is a test consultant with Sogeti, Netherlands.  He is an expert in model based testing, TMap NEXT, TPI NEXT and software development. Ben loves learning about IT with an emphasis on testing and quality. He believes that testing, be it specification or execution, can and should be automated as much as possible.

Do you agree with Ben?

Anders Ekdahl

Profile picture of Anders

Anders is a test consultant with CAG Contactor,Sweden. He specializes in test automation and has 28 years experience in the IT industry, 23 of which were as a tester. Anders also enjoys a well stored single malt whisky. It is a pity Anders could not join us at EuroSTAR 2013 in Gothenburg for the insightful, and delicious, whiskey tasting session which was hosted by Graham Freeburn.

However, for those of you who join us in Dublin this November you can sample some fine Irish malt whisky as well as some tasty Guinness.

Whiskey Tasting SEssion

*Trivia: A Guinness which is accompanied by a whiskey is often referred to as “Guinness and whiskey chaser” and it is very important that you buy these drinks for EuroSTAR staff members if you see them 🙂


and last but not least…

Fiona Charles

Fiona is a test consultant with Quality Intelligence, Canada.
