Vernon Richards

Quality Coach / Senior Quality Engineer

About Speaker

I’m a Quality Coach & Tester that helps orgs, teams & individuals understand the relationship between quality & testing to help them build better products & deliver more effective services. I’ve been testing since 2002 starting with video games on PS2, Xbox & PC. It may not sound like a real job but it’s the truth! By day I’m a Senior Quality Engineer at a health tech night I run Abode of Quality. Here is one of my core values: “The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude (& how you’re thinking) about the problem.” - Captain Jack Sparrow (the part in brackets was my addition though!) I believe that quality & testing problems are actually people problems in disguise! Often the cause of these problems is misaligned goals, different perspectives, low empathy for colleagues, and the list goes on. Using my coaching skills in the quality & testing space, I believe the most effective way to serve the business, is to help teams & individuals gain new perspectives about themselves & their teammates.

About Speaker

Working professionally in Software Testing for almost ten years I've had the pleasure of working on a range of different software. From enterprise infrastructure and virtualisation at Citrix, via WebApps and more then one back-end API and micro-service! I like to think I understand how software is built and where it lives, and this helps give me confidence when exploring and identifying risks. Known online as The Full Snack Tester, I run the daily celebration of the Testing Community called Tester of The Day: https://testeroftheday.com/
