Software. Well… It’s Complicated

I am a testing engineer technical leader at Intel Corporation, I test firmware and software, coach teams and help friends. I am convinced that the most significant factor in our quest for quality is people, not features or technology – and am especially interested in understanding (though not always answering) the philosophical questions of software testing.
I’ve been working with an official role of Tester since 2005, before that I spent 5 years writing programs in a role of Programmer (testing is being more fun). I’ve worked with retail software, machinery software, web pages, embedded… My role is what Intel calls a Technical Leader, which gives me the opportunity to devise the testing strategy my team will pursue and invent entirely new ways to test entirely new techs.
It’s been a privilege being able to expose my ideas in peer conferences, big conferences, the BetterSoftware magazine and other venues. My online writings about software testing are at testing.gershon.info and the “Rapid Reporter” exploratory testing note-taking tool is at testing.gershon.info/reporter.
