Start here


flamingoWelcome to my blog!  People have been asking me to create a blog for some time now, so I figure it is time to get off my lazy butt and do it.  So here it goes….

Hi! – my name is Dave Whalen.  I am a self-proclaimed “Software Entomologist” (much like Michael Jackson called himself the “King of Pop”).  Which essentially means I study, and have dedicated my life to, software testing and bugs.  I have been testing both hardware and software (sometimes both at the same time) for over 20 years.  These days I am an independent software testing consultant – proud owner of “Whalen Technologies”.  I currently live in Denver, Colorado where, as I write this, it’s @#$%ing cold!  I ocassionally speak at local and national software testing conferences (especially if they are held in Las Vegas).  My specialties are testing processes and procedures.  I’m currently focused on Defect Management processes and Tools.  I’ll try to post something at least weekly.  More often if I have the time or a particular subject to rant about – which I typically do.  Feel free to comment, or contact me, or send me your favorite Gumbo recipe!



  1. Oh good! Glad to see you out here! And now I’ll be able to point to your blog when I write about you in mine today!
