Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Bruno Conde. I’m a Software Engineer and Product Manager at Xpand IT. I started Xray, a Test Management tool for Jira, in both cloud and on-premise variants. I was the Xray lead developer for many years. Nowadays, I manage the product.

Before that, I worked at Morphis Tech creating language parsers, static analysers, migraton tools and IDEs.

A long, long time ago, I participated in the Imagine Cup world-wide finals with a project called XSMobile to summarize web pages for hand-held devices such as PDAs.

I created this blog to share some projects and war stories, hoping these might help someone.

The name for this blog was inspired in my favorite quote:

I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me. - Sir Isaac Newton
