I'm a long time tester and developer working for Microsoft where I'm currently a Principal SDET on the XBox team.

I've also worked on Microsoft Lync, Windows CE, Windows, and spent some time as Microsoft's Director of Test Excellence.

I am the lead author on the Microsoft Press book "How We Test Software at Microsoft", contributed chapters to a few other books (including "Beautful Testing") and frequently speak to, consult with, or teach classes to software developers and testers.

comment Any advice from self-taught programmers on competing with more conventional types?
I'd agree - my degree is in music composition as well (BM and MM). Good to know there's another composer turned architect out there.

comment Black box or white box testing - which do you do first?
Agreed - I guess my statement depends on your definition of good coverage.
