About Chris

Motivated Analyst with seven years of testing experience. Recognised for assessing operational needs and developing solutions to save costs, improve revenues, and drive customer satisfaction. Resourceful and well-organised. I am looking to be able to take on more responsibility, help maintain a high standard of quality control and take on new challenges.

My Git Hub Page

I use GitHub a lot more private than public, I am looking to expand my public code more in the future.

My Azure Projects

I work with azure a lot and decided to learn more about it by running my code and projects against it. I am running through FastAPi with Pluralsight and have started using DevOps to manage my learning.

QA techniques

  • Performance Testing with Locust allowed me to work with developers to identify blockers within their code base for asynchronous data loading and saving.
  • Preparation and execution of test scripts for multiple levels of testing using the TestRail tool.
  • Creation of test tools; handcrafted a python script that pulled data from excel test sheets and loaded the data into an Excel report to automatically report on the status of testing.
  • Created e2e automation test suite of Python scripts integrated to TeamCity to provide confidence of quality across the CI pipeline
  • Automating Load Testing using Python and Raspberry Pis to collect data on the performance of the backend server.
  • Exploratory testing of POS till system software using timeboxed test charters to provide quality narratives back to the team in an environment of no formal documentation or requirements.
