Software Tester at Poppulo, Ireland. Newbie speaker.

About Me

  • From Ireland, Tipperary to be precise, Roscrea to be preciser (Don’t worry if you’ve never heard of it before, not many people have)
  • Graduated from University of Limerick many moons ago. Have worked/lived in Dublin, Hong Kong and London. Now based in Cork
  • Been a tester for over 13 years in Finance, Insurance, Online Gaming, Cloud Platform and Software Development industries
  • Previously I’ve worked on test automation with UI and API level tests. My current focus is on helping the team with observability, defining acceptance criteria and using practices such as three amigo sessions to highlight any risks.
  • In my spare time I like to play football (Flabby Alonso - 2018 Douglas Astro League 6-a-side back to back champions, nothing to be sniffed at!)
  • I’m also a keen darts player but am pretty much retired these days. I’ve been trying to learn the guitar for about a year now with mixed results.. I did master Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer just in time for Christmas though.
