Mike Lyles tells us about his career so far and shares his thoughts on testing and quality.
In November 2011, I was fortunate to meet someone who would change my writing and speaking career forever. Matt Heusser was writing a column called “Ask The Tester” for ST&QA Magazine – a magazine that so many testing professionals follow. Matt wanted to interview me for his column. We worked together, and I was fortunate to be featured in the March 2012 edition.
After a wonderful 2012, writing articles for the magazine and speaking for their conference (STP Con) in October, 2012, I was asked by Matt to take over the article in 2013. What an honor and a privilege.
