Sam Woods recently joined Puppet Labs as a Senior Software QA Engineer with 17 years of QA and automation experience, including 13 years at Microsoft. He is a self taught developer who has evolved to the point of helping multiple mid to large size organizations create automation strategies, build strong automation teams, create the necessary automation infrastructure to support the strategies, and then execute on them. He has presented on UI automation at the local Portland Selenium meet up and presented multiple times to audiences as large as 300 people within the companies he has worked for. He currently has the 5th highest all time ranking on the SQA Stack Exchange  forum. Sam gets excited about improving efficiency through both automation and best practices, as well as getting into the weeds with automation and automation infrastructure. Outside of work, Sam enjoys singing karaoke and spending lots of daddy time with his two young daughters.
