Michael Larsen

Michael Larsen

Software Tester, Writer, Instructor and Podcast Producer

I retired from a career as a rock and roll singer to pursue software testing full time at Cisco Systems in 1992. After a decade at Cisco, I've worked with a broad array of technologies and industries including virtual machine software, capacitance touch devices, video game development, and distributed database & web applications. I have, for the better part of my 30+ year career, found myself in the role of being the "Army of One" or "The Lone Tester" more times than not. This unique viewpoint, along with ideas and advocacy regarding continuous education and learning/re-learning for testers, is frequently the grist for the mill that is TESTHEAD.
