Past Presentations

You can find an extensive list of presentations and courses that I've taught, including the slides and speaker notes for many of them, here.

Coming up—let's meet!

Check out my schedule, and drop me a line if you'd like to get together when I'm in your part of the world. If you'd like me to work with you and it doesn't look like I'm available, remember that my clients' schedules are subject to change, so mine is too. Finally, note that some conferences offer discounts—and even if they don't advertise it, maybe we can work something out.

About DevelopSense

DevelopSense was founded in 1998 in Los Angeles, California, to provide testing and consulting services. In 2002, I returned to my home, Toronto.

In 2003, I began a close collaboration with James Bach. In the last several years, I've taught the Rapid Software Testing course that I now co-author with him in Canada (Ontario, Nova Scotia, British Columbia), the United States (California, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, and Washington state), Brazil, France, Germany, India, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, and Turkey. I've given presentations on Rapid Software Testing, exploratory testing, and a host of other testing and management topics at conferences in Ottawa, Ontario; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Valencia, Barcelona, and Madrid in Spain; Wellington, New Zealand; Canberra and Sydney in Australia; New Delhi, Bangalore, and Mumbai, in India; Stockholm, Sweden; Den Haag and Baarn, The Netherlands; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Boston, Massachusetts; Portland, Oregon; Orlando, Florida; and Toronto, Ontario.

In 2005, I co-founded (with my colleague Fiona Charles) the Toronto Workshop on Software Testing, and I've written a regular column for Better Software Magazine (formerly STQE) since 2005. Through 2005, I also tested almost full-time for a large Canadian financial services organization.
