Katy Sherman started her career as a developer, then development manager. She worked for a number of companies, was introduced to Agile, loved it, and tried to apply those ideas wherever she could. Then she got her current job of Director of Software Engineering which put her in charge of a cross-functional group of developers and QA. And oh boy, how much she had to learn about QA, testing, and quality. It was an eye-opener. She continues to study quality and agility and find ways of reducing the testing effort by improving development quality, DevOps and automation.
