Breaking Embedded Software

I am Jon D. Hagar, an industry-recognized mobile and embedded systems testing expert and I readily offer my wealth of experience to others. I practice context based testing (how you test depends on your context). I travel and teach software and systems testing for conferences as well as through private tutorials or customized classes. I am sought by various government agencies and private industry for advice and direction on testing embedded and mobile software. I am constantly learning the latest technologies through personal research as well as through worldwide networks of like-minded thinkers who devise innovative approaches such as that of “attacking” software to find bugs.

In 2013 I published my first book, "Software Test Attacks to Break Mobile and Embedded Systems." Since then I have published four e-books on test environments and techniques. Many testers have found these publications helpful additions to their work reference libraries. The e-books are works in progress and are subject to changes so I recommend you check back to see any updates.

I present regularly at numerous industry working groups and conferences and have provided materials for inclusion into several colleague’s books, including Dorothy Graham and Mark Fewster’s “Experiences of Test Automation” and Lisa Crispin and Janet Gregory’s “Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams.”

I also hold a patent on web test technologies.

Find me through a Google search, LinkedIn, through TechWell, or catch me at one of the many testing conferences or work groups.
If you have questions and would like to consult with me about breaking software for embedded or mobile devices, or customized classes and training contact me. I offer customized training and consulting based on my books.
