So,

JC, 32, married, 2 kids (second borned 2 month ago… so I don’t sleep anymore! : ).

I love:

Obviously my wife and kids!
My job ( rare enought to tell!:slight_smile:)
Sports, in particular Historical Medieval Fights (HMB exemple for curious peoples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdIpum3GmVs&t=2420s). I have my own “team”, preparing myself for France championship in Duel categories.
I was a big gamer… until my first kid born… :confused:

Welcome on board :wink:
This place is slowly becoming a gathering of froggies!

Just a few ideas to help you feed your introduction:

What led you to testing in the first place?
Do you have a technical background or a business background or a scientific background?
What do you like in testing?
In what type of team / work setting are you currently in?
How long have you been in testing?

Thx Florence ::slight_smile:

So:

What led you to testing in the first place?
Luck / Friends.
My job and studdies was totaly diffrent. I was a photographer / graphic artist for more than 8 years.

In 2012 I decided to change my professionnal way. Photography is dead or almost, press is dead too, and I was working for Lagardère group (big french press group) for the most so…

I have many develloppers friends who told me “Come with us we have cookies:)”. And to make it short story, QA was a good introduction to Dev world so here I am!

Do you have a technical background or a business background or a scientific background?
As I told… artistic skills maybe? :stuck_out_tongue:
But work in progress to fill my gaps (ISTQB Fondation Done, Master degree in project)

What do you like in testing?
This job was made for me! I love the investigative work Qa means, the technical part,
the love of a job well done…

But the automation is my favorite part (Selenium / JAVA).

In what type of team / work setting are you currently in?
Not sure to understand you question…

You mean SSII or permanent?

How long have you been in testing?

Have a real Qa job from almost 4 years.

Anything else? :slight_smile:
