Hello from Atlanta!

Hi everyone!

I am quite excited (and nervous) to be diving into a new BBST course after how much I learned from the previous ones (and how much work they were).

I'm a security analyst in a small business unit of a really large company and before that I was in IT as a system administrator and what all else.
Cheerfully enough I live within walking distance of the office and try to take advantage of that as often as weather permits.

I use testing techniques, especially those learned in BBST courses, in a lot of non-development software work including vulnerability assessment and configuration management. I have a sneaking suspicion there is a crossover between security analysis and software testing methodologies in my future careers ...

I like testing and automation tools because they support my scientific focus on dealing with computers and users both. I demand reproducibility and hooks for automation in, well, practically everything ... and not just at work. I've been heard to cry out "It's computer science, not computer superstition!" on occasion when reboots(!) are suggested as a solution** to a problem.

Outside of work or software even I read escapist fiction and nerdy non-fiction, watch some telly, bemoan how I'm not keeping up with my foreign language studies, crafting, or martial arts lessons, and then get distracted by video games, cats, or other humans.

Greetings!

** Workaround they may be but not a solution and they destroy any hope of researching that instance of the problem...

Nice to know you're still alive and struggling to do all the stuff you want to do VS. all the stuff you have to do (just like the rest of us).
