I’m Elisabeth Hendrickson.

I founded Quality Tree Software, Inc., a consulting and                   training company dedicated to helping software teams deliver       working solutions consistently and sustainably. My current         interests include test automation, Exploratory testing, and             Agile development.

I’ve been involved in software development for a long time: I wrote my first line of code in 1980; moments later, I found my first bug.

In subsequent years, I held positions as a tester, developer, manager, and quality engineering director in a variety of companies ranging from small startups to multi-national enterprises.

I’ve been a member of the Agile community since 2003. I served on the board of directors of the Agile Alliance in 2007/2008 and am currently one of the co-organizers of the Agile Alliance Functional Testing Tools program.

These days, I split my time between teaching, speaking, writing, and working on Agile teams with test-infected programmers who value my obsession with testing. You can also find me on Twitter as @testobsessed.
