DIRECTOR OF SOFTWARE TEST

Butch Mayhew is the Director of Software Test at Daxko who loves finding more efficient ways to complete tasks. This played out in two major areas within his organization; test strategies that focus on deep exploratory feature testing, and creating test automation frameworks that have identified over 150 defects in his test environments. While he isn't busy automating the next boring task, you can find him at the disc golf course during the day or saving the princess with his kids on his RetroPie at night.

I will share a personal example on how I've personally used the DevTools to uncover or clarify an issue as a software tester
