William Dye

Software Engineer in Test, mostly Linux/shell/C

United States - Tests: 2

I've worked as a programmer for over 20 years, mostly in Linux and C on a large 3D CAD program. Six years ago I switched from development to work full-time on creating and running an automated software testing system for our product. Most of the testing was done on life-critical calculations written by structural engineers. Software testing isn't simply a way to save money when you finally start looking for bugs just before the release goes out. It's a way of thinking and doing things that can improve the entire development process, from initial product design, to coding, to QA checks. My goal is to help developers use these techniques to dramatically improve their ability to get code out the door faster and with fewer errors.
