I’m Joe DeMeyer and I started a career in engineering, found satisfaction in programming, and passion in testing. When I started in IT many years ago, the concept of a separate testing organization was new to me but also very curious. I was struck by both the dedication to a better product and willingness to ask questions but concerned that the product was not getting the depth of attention needed to make it better.
A few years later, I was asked to move into a role that bridged both programming and testing roles which could assist in bringing more depth as well as more coverage through the application of technology. My title is System Test Engineer. I’ve learned more about testing and even more about myself since working in this role. Things are still curious so I share my thoughts and experiences here to reflect on them, and to encourage you to share your opinions.
