About the Author
Mike Smith is an R&D architect at Ideagen Plc. Mike fell in love with software testing in 2011. Since then, he's been trying to blur the lines between testing, development, and DevOps in his career. His experiences have ranged from being the sole tester on major projects that saved millions of pounds, leading user acceptance testing (UAT) teams of over twenty people, and creating a test function within a business from scratch. He has a keen interest in the technical aspects of software creation and testing, including load testing, performance analysis, and security testing. He's also a keen evangelist for testing practices and procedures. In his current position, Mike works closely with all parts of the business to ensure appropriate tooling is available, creates testing capabilities for the new technologies being rolled into the company, and contributes to development teams' working practices and technology decisions.
