About the author



Hello and welcome to my blog,

My name is Viktor Slavchev and I am a software tester, but not the one that most people think they are – I don’t verify or validate, but I explore, I investigate, I experiment, I question. In other words, I take software testing very damn seriously.

I am currently working as a Senior software tester and I am also teaching software testing in my hometown – Sofia, Bulgaria.

I have previous experience in:

  • Web testing
  • Mobile
  • Service integration testing
  • Testing middle-ware for SS7 networks in the telco area.

I have natural aptitude for testing from scientific perspective and the relations between testing and science. I read a lot of books on testing, I talk at conferences and events.

I am also interested in programming and technology in general.

Besides that, I like gaming, martial arts and beer! 🙂

I hope you have a good time here.

Best regards,

    Thank you so much for your kind words about my site, “Adventures in Automation”! I have been trying to switch from being a manual QA Engineer to an automated tester for years. Finally, I found a position at Fitbit-Boston! I’ve been trying to capture as much knowledge as possible. Blogging about what I am learning seems to help stick the information in my head.

    How did you manage to come across my blog? I didn’t think anyone besides me really read it?

      Hey, T.J.
      In fact I bet there is 🙂 I started reading your posts few months ago may be, as I found ’em appearing in ministry of testing’s RSS feed and I noticed you have some really good ideas on automation, interesting topics, not just the regular login write in Google etc. So, really good job on the Automating Amazon series I look forward seeing the rest, keep up with the great job you are doing and good luck 🙂

        Whenever I come across a complex idea or a new way of doing automation, and I am unclear on how something actually works, I spend a -lot- of time doing independent research. That is how I come up with my many side-projects.

        My latest one is “RESTful Testing using Stripe” where I am attempting to create an automated test framework for APIs. You can view the source code at: https://github.com/tjmaher/RESTful_Testing_Using_Stripe
