Almudena Vivanco

Telefónica I+D

I studied Applied Maths at Oviedo University from that time my taste for graphs and numbers. I arrived to Barcelona 11 years ago and started working as .NET programmer. I realized that I am better at discovering issues than at fixing them, and as I am a lazy I started using automatization tools for testing. I am a gamer, i love mmo’s since MUDs and of course i love playing without lag! When i discovered there were people that worked with testing the performance of online services I fell in love and 7 years ago i decided to be a performance test engineer. I worked for,, azkar, and Nowadays i work in Telefónica I+D learning new things every day.
