Pre-millennium Shey broke his testing teeth in computer games, he can be held responsible for such iconic successes as Catwoman, Malice and the little known Harry Potter… Originally from Melbourne Shey’s career has been as varied as his Anglicised Australian vowel sounds. Following a decade in Games Design, Project Management and Software Development he has spent the past 10 years working back in Testing - where his passion truly lies. As a Consultant he's covered various Test roles including a long term placement working with JK Rowling’s Team at Pottermore. Shey’s broad range of experience enables easy connections to be made with colleagues from all areas of the business spectrum. Shey can regularly be found providing the link or explanation between people from different disciplines. Shey has a significant presence within the testing community, sharing his perspective on Twitter, LinkedIn, and MoT's The Club forum among others. In-person he co-organises the London Tester Gathering and has volunteered TestBash. While not the first time Shey has spoken at TestBash, this will be the first time speaking for longer than 99 seconds. This year’s appearance is slightly longer but follows his usual theme of helping leaders to discover and develop their own leadership style. When not talking about testing, Shey can be found talking about his next passion, craft beer. Follow him to find where good beer is being served.
