Other Examples

  • I was a member of Canonical for several years, during which I created formal testing procedures and documentation for the Ubuntu Certified program.

As a result I have a proven track record of working within the community, respecting NDAs as necessary, and designing, implementing, and managing large-scale testing projects.
