About Me!

Ard is software tester from the Netherlands and he works for ImproveQS. He uses the title Qualisopher which stands for someone “who loves truth and wisdom and at the same time is decisive to improve man and his environment” . He is interested in the world around us, to see what we can learn and apply in software testing. That is one of the reason why I tell stories in books and at (test) conferences such as EuroSTAR, Expo:QA, Belgium Testing Days, CAST and Testnet conferences.

Dennis is responsible as Test manager for systems that generate information for train travelers. He works at the Dutch Railways where he works in a complex environment. The LED-bar is a part of this complex environment and architecture, therefore he worked closely together with Ard to get the project to a successful end.
