Stéphane in wenigen Worten

I'm working since 2001 for software editor companies, first as a software developer then as a software tester since 2006, and now as a freelance.

Testing is a passion and in addition to my skills allowing me to test any software, I remain eager to learn a lot about my craft: with books and blogs, by attending conferences and meetups, here, on twitter or with other testers of the testing community.

The exploration, questioning with the developers and all those involved in the project (users included), heuristics, oracles and bias avoidance are part of my tools.

I also blog on Lyon Testing and organize the Ministry of Testing Lyon Meetup.

I live in France (Lyon) and can work remotely.
