He got also involved in the current curricula for security test specialists and for mobile application testers. By electing him to a vice president, GTB has acknowledged his long-standing untiring contributions and his experience in the association.

"My voluntary involvement in GTB has always been motivated by my wish to professionalize the training of software testers. My main goal in my new management position is to promote GTB's contributions to the maintenance and development of the qualification scheme. I would like to thank Sogeti Germany for the continuous support of my engagement at GTB" said Matthias Hamburg in the run-up to his candidacy.
