Matthew tests software at Allan Gray in Cape Town
He started in IT as a business analyst and found his true-tester-self two years later, in 2014, and has loved the testing craft ever since.
Being inspired by a Let’s Test conference years ago, he founded the Cape Town Testing meetup (https://meetup.com/Cape-Town-Testing-Meetup/) community in an attempt to share the essence of what he felt at the conference with his local contemporaries.
Matthew is passionate about bringing people together and creating a platform for testers to feel pride in their craft, to share inspiration and excellence in testing. He creates fun spaces for testers to find identity and guidance in a traditionally difficult technical and historical context.
His community-focused initiative has led him to be part of the small Let’s Test South Africa conference planning team.
Matthew is a difficult-question-asker, a fighter-for-the-user, and a cat-herd-rally’er.
