Bjorn Boisschot

Solution Architect, Second Best Presentator at Eurostar

CTG, Belgium


Bjorn is an IT professional with more than 15 years’ experience in quality assurance and how this fits into the software development cycle. He started as a test automation engineer and quickly was bitten by the question of how test automation can deliver the most value. This has led him on a road to discover the links between development best practices and how QA can leverage these.

I have contributed a chapter to “Experiences of test automation” (book by Dorothy Graham & Mark Fewster). One of the things he loves the most is to be on stage (at customers or conferences) and talk about his experiences. He has done this at several testing related congresses.

His last presentation at Eurostar was rated as the second best presentation at the event with a score of 9,27/10.


DevOps: Test Alone

As in the movie HomeAlone, it seems that Dev and Ops have gone on a journey and forgot to take testing/QA with them. We hear big companies tell stories that they have no more testers, all testing is done in production, everything is fully automated by dev, etc. The actual truth lies somewhere in between these statements!

For most DevOps implementations, QA is actually crucial in order to succeed. DevOps however has a dramatic impact on the way we do QA! In this session, Bjorn will give you some concrete examples and tips on how QA engineers can leverage some of the DevOps principles for the job. Bjorn will also highlight what he believes are the necessary changes QA engineers will need to go through in order to survive in this new world.
