Just a couple of day and the year 2013 comes to its end. It’s time to look back and reflect what I have done this year. Quite a lot of things came across my path: daily work, sales meeting, testing conferences, writing articles, training people and my promotion. Yes, you read it well, I have been promoted to a different business unit: consultancy 🙂 ! (this means that I will do a bigger variety of assignments across the Netherlands) I worked for the following customers in 2013:
SpilGames Implementation of an automated testing framework using the open source stack.
Dimpact Implementation of performance testscripts to measure the server-side performance (Jmeter) as well as the client-side performance(WebDriver).
