About This Class

The idea behind this class is to run through the basic skills you need to find and correct bugs. No, not the ones cowering in the corners of your bedroom (yikes), the ones cowering in the corners of your website or app code (yikes). 

A lot of people spend hours trying to find and fix every single bug when in all honesty, it's a frustrating, thankless, and never-ending endeavor. After this class you should be in the correct mindset to determine which bugs are worth fixing and which aren't. I will give you the best advice I have when it comes to figuring out which bugs matter and which bugs are often overlooked. 

Just to clarify, this class is not for developers - it's for those on the other side of the barrel - anyone who works with developers. Entrepreneurs, freelancers, project managers - especially when you're launching a project - you'll need to know what's going on in order to communicate effectively or even save time (and money) by hunting on your own. This crash course in bug hunting QA works better if you're following along with your app/website/project while listening so be sure to have it on hand.

What you'll learn:

  • How to determine which bugs are worth it and which arent
  • Bugs that people frequently miss
  • The correct mindset for happy hunting

What you'll do:

We'll toss you out in the wild (world of the Internet) so you'll get plenty of hunting practice in. Feel free to use your own project or app for this.

Director at Sprintkick

Hi, I'm Evan Kimbrell.

Thanks for checking out my classes.

Currently, I'm the Founder, Director of Sprintkick, a referral-based full service digital agency based out of San Francisco. Over the past 4 years, I've overseen the development and launch of over 100 web and mobile apps. Clients range from 1-2 man startups bootstrapping their initial idea to multibillion dollar Fortune 100's like Wal-Mart, Dick's Sporting Goods, & GNC.

Prior to Sprintkick, I worked as a VC for a firm called Juvo Capital, based out of L.A. I spearheaded the firm's expansion into the Silicon Valley deal flow and into the Consumer Web tech category.

Before working for Juvo, in the long, long ago, I was a co-founder for an educational software startup called ScholarPRO that raised a ton of money and then spectacularly blew up (in the bad way). Before it exploded like the Death Star, I went through 5 tech incubators (yes 5) with Tech Stars, Excelerate Labs, MassChallenge, Babson Venture Program, and Sparkseed.

That's enough about me. Hope you enjoy my class!
