I’m Dylan; I’ve been a tester since my first job way back in 2007. Back then I was cobbling together a Selenium-powered JUnit performance testing suite for a team of non-technical quality folks. Fast Forward a “few” years, and I’m currently the Manager of Developer Relations at Sauce Labs! Before this, I was a Software Engineer in the Support Team at Sauce, so I know a tiny bit about a lot of testing tools.
Outside of Dev; My husband and I just bought our first house and I’ve been excitedly working on the garden, where I’m trying to grown weirdo vegetables. It’s keeping my bees happy (Oh yeah, I’m a hobby beekeeper as well). I love to go camping, play boardgames, cook, bake and ferment things.
I’m also back at uni, doing a Bachelor of Language and Linguistics, majoring in Japanese and trying to convince the uni to let me minor in Auslan, the Australian Sign Language. This is my second degree; If I finish it, I’m planning to do a Masters and then maybe a PhD in Linguistics? It Depends
Looking forward to chatting with more of y’all, helping with any Sauce Labs questions and learning what the industry is up to!
