Who I am and where I am, March 2013

I am the QA Lead for the Wikimedia Foundation  I test Wikipedia.  My one year anniversary was in January.  I do exploratory testing and I do browser test automation with my colleague Željko Filipin.  I have a strong interest right now in community testing of all kinds.

I'll be talking about testing Wikipedia at some conferences soon:

GTAC April 23-24, NYC
Telerik Test Summit May 3-4, Austin TX
Wikimedia Hackathon May 24-26, Amsterdam
Agile2013 (pending acceptance) Aug 4-10, Nashville TN

I used to write about software a lot:  (warning: registration wall),  and a couple of articles for PragPub.   I wrote a chapter for Beautiful Testing.

For many years I have been telecommuting from Durango CO where I created and hosted the Writing About Testing peer conference.  WAT is unlikely to happen again.

I am on my way out of Durango, but I will continue to telecommute.  In the coming months you might also find me near:

Santa Barbara CA
Tucson AZ
San Francisco CA
Southern Utah
Ithaca NY
Boulder CO
Dulce NM

I'm @chris_mcmahon on Twitter, christopher.mcmahon on all the Google services, chrs_mcmhn on Skype, although I rarely use Skype.  I am on a lot of Wikimedia IRC channels every day.  I am not on LinkedIn or Facebook.
