I'm Ash Winter, an independent tester and conference speaker. My formative years as a consultant gave a broad background in software development. Experience in testing, performance engineering, and automation of both build and test. I even spent a while being a Scrum Master and Product Owner. This set me up for a move into the crazy world of start-ups, which left me with a tale or two to tell. After exploring all these options, I decided that focusing on testing was my path and I work for myself now. Spending my time speaking, training, writing, performing testing for clients, coaching when invited to find answers to difficult problems.
