January '96 - June '98

Principal Software Engineer

With the success of our automation tools several people were hired and my group was given responsibility for both the international and US automation tools effort. I continued, in mainly a research, design and management role to direct our efforts. From 1997 onward we had to quickly provide comprehensive solutions to aid our Java and Internet testing strategies. This has not only necessitated rapid learning of new technology but also discussion and influencing of outside companies (Sun , IBM) to try to encourage them to develop their 3rd party tools so that we can use them to complement our own.
