About Philosophe.com

About Me

I've hired, mentored, and managed software quality assurance teams for a long time.

For the last decade I've been designing and building custom test automation frameworks.

Philosophe.com

Yes, a real word for a domain name, Old English philosophe, from the latin philosophus, from the Greek philosophos. Pronounce it FEE-low-sof.

I started writing this site in 1998 to describe a thoughtful approach to the role of software testing and the practice of software quality assurance. I stopped updating it regularly because of other life priorities. But I kept exploring how we understand quality and how we do the testing thing. After working with test automation for 10 years, I found that I had a lot to say again.

Philosophe is now written in markdown and generated and flattened into a static site using Python and MkDocs with a slightly modified Alabaster for MkDocs theme.

I've never run advertising on this site and never tracked users.
