Know your Speaker!

Melissa Tondi has spent most of her career working within software testing teams. She is a frequent speaker and writer at forums focusing on the Agile, QA/QE, and DevOps spaces and is in Quality Engineering leadership and a Principal Consultant at Disrupt Testing, where she assists companies to continuously improve the pursuit of quality software—from design to delivery and everything in between.

In her software testing and quality engineering careers, Melissa has focused on building and organizing teams around three major tenets—efficiency, innovation, and culture – and uses the Greatest Common Denominator (GCD) approach for determining ways in which team members can assess, implement and report on day to day activities so the gap between need and value is as small as possible.
