An engineer with a great passion for value-creation, efficiency and quality throughout the development lifecycle.
Developing high value, complex software efficiently in large, complex organizations fascinates me, as it spans over so many different fields; business, technical challenges, QA & test, processes, management and leadership, organizational theory, team efficiency, culture, tools & automation and many others.
I love to learn and develop, nurture and grow those around me, and deliver value to my stakeholders.
When hiring game testers, we should look beyond specific tasks, such as finding bugs, and hire for a competence and skillset, which we then allow to create value in the best possible way.
In this article I will explore what I feel are the most important skills and attributes of a good game tester, and what type of mindset I believe a good game tester should have.
In this article I will explore what I believe is a good foundation for building high quality games, and software in general. I will cover a wide array of different topics which have in common that I believe they all contribute to this goal.
This article sums up why I think Agile methodologies are a key component to attain high quality in complex product development, such as when producing games.
In this article I will explore the acronym QA, and why I think we should do away with it for good.
In this article I will explore why I think that deadlines should never be communicated to the development teams, and why all deadlines are basically meaningless anyway.

Creating and maintaining large test suites is quite a significant cost. An alternative to this is switching to more exploratory testing, with more focus on high level heuristics and test missions. r n r nOne of the best online free resources I have found for learning more about this is: ...
