I’m passionate about accessibility, exploring, and testing as part of the creation and development of software. I strongly believe in collaborative methods and using different thought techniques and people’s perspectives to look at things from many angles. Accessibility is about inclusion, not just disability.
Concept creator and lead trainer of Software Testing Bootcamps and Apprenticeships. I have also taught workshops, coached and mentored very successful testers throughout my career.
I have my own blog at The Big Test Theory.com sharing a monthly collection of accessibility news and information called A11y With Ady. It also is the home of my Periodic Table of Testing, a visual heuristic showing the breadth of the testing universe. I have been published in Testing Experience magazine and The Testing Planet. I have given presentations to Agile and Testing groups at meetups, special interest groups and conferences across the UK and Europe. I am very proud to be a founder member and organizer of the Ministry of Testing Leeds meetup.
