Mark Harris realized the need for quality while shipping Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 R2 during his 15-year stint at Microsoft. After leaving Microsoft in 2010, he started a QA team at Grange Insurance and ignited the Columbus QA revolution with the “QA or the Highway” conference. Following that, he shortened his commute and sharpened his skills with open source at Manta Media. Mark has a set of strong opinions, held weakly, on software development, which he will generally share at a moment’s notice. A father of 3 and husband of 1, he spends his free time exploring brands of single-malt scotch and writing iPhone apps (usually not together).
