• Rob Walker

    Rob has been a developer of testing and simulation tools for 35 years, a majority of which has been with his current firm, Ascert, LLC. In the early days this frequently involved hand crafting automation rigs in system languages such as TAL, C/C++, and scripting languages such as TACL and Ascert's own VersaTest VTALK. With the widespread uptake of open platforms came fresh opportunities to learn new languages and techniques, Java and Javascript amongst others, to support the process of delivering server and cloud based solutions with web-enabled front ends. Although now one of the 'old-guard' of software developers, one of the aspects which Rob most enjoys about his daily work is the challenge of remaining current with technology trends.

    Ascert is recognized as a leading provider of premier testing software solutions. Ascert was founded in 1992 to provide automated software testing solutions that help companies measure the performance, reliability and scalability of their mission-critical back-end servers and applications. With over 100 clients worldwide, Ascert's products and services are used at some of the world's most successful companies.
