My name is Tancred Ross, and I am a 100% self-taught practitioner with years of experience in testing.
Through working on dozens of successful projects with quite challenging tasks to analyze, optimize, and improve them, which required completely new approaches and solutions, I have learned how to approach testing in a completely new way. I am an explorer who is always eager to discover something untouched and never fully believes in typical standard solutions. This mentality has led me throughout my life, and it has helped me to become an expert in testing.
Writing the books, I want to make a contribution to the worldwide testing community as a giveback for all the knowledge I got at some point, first of all from people who were kind enough to share their experience for free at different points of my career; also from articles, tutorials, and so on. Secondly, I want to describe the issues which I was the most anxious to figure out at some point in my career, which took me the most time, versus the others available in books and on different online tutorials. Finally, I am deeply convinced that any knowledge is priceless. It is an invaluable asset that can lead people to a completely new level of life, not just professionally but overall. So, I am following the "pass it on" principle and giving this to everyone who looks for it.
I write and publish each of my books to help other testers who are struggling to make progress in their careers. I want to share the knowledge I have gained through my years of experience and help others to achieve their goals.
Whether you are just starting out in testing or you are a veteran looking to stay up-to-date with the latest approaches, these books have something to offer.
