Hi, I’m Dave Westerveld!

I want to help you get better at the testing part of making good quality software.

I am a professional software tester based in Ontario, Canada. I love learning new things, and I love sharing what I’ve learned with others. In fact, I originally created this site as a place to share what I’m learning. You can follow along with my learning journey through my blog posts.

I also want to help testers stay relavent in a constantly changing industry.

There has been, is, and always will be a demand for the skills of those that can help create good quality software, but the ways to do it have changed over the years.

In an attempt to help testers stay relavent and grow their skills in our changing industry, I have created several courses as well as a wrtten a book.

If you want, you can read more about me here.

API Testing and Development With Postman

May 7, 2021

I tried to make this book as practical as possible. My goal is that you will be able to immediately put into practice what you are learning as you go through this book. I want you to not only understand how to use Postman, but also how to do good API testing and design.

API Testing Foundations Course

This is my most popular course! In it I show you how to get started with API testing. As with all my courses, it is intensely practical and hands on. I have a number of other courses as well, which you can check out here.
