Maaike is an independent agile tester. She loves testing because there are so many ways to add value to a team, be it by thinking critically about the product, working on the team dynamics, working to clarify the specs and testability of the product, getting the whole team to test with Exploratory Testing…the options are almost endless! She likes to help teams who are not sure where or what to test. After reading “Thinking, Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman she developed a special interest in the role of psychology in software development. During ‘analogue time’ Maaike likes to practice yoga, go for a run, check out new local beers, play her clarinet and travel with her boyfriend.
