About Me!

After nearly 40 years in the industry, software quality and testing practitioner Isabel Evans is now a post-graduate student at the University of Malta.

Research continues with modelling and trialing a framework for test tool design. Isabel authored “Achieving Software Quality Through Teamwork” and chapters in “Agile Testing: How to Succeed in an eXtreme Testing Environment”, “Testing Practitioner”, and “Foundations of Software Testing”. Isabel has chaired EuroSTAR (2019) and HUSTEF (2018), and presented popular tutorials and storytelling keynotes at conferences worldwide.
