I have 20+ years of experience building software. Half of it in coding, half in testing and/or organisational development. I have published a book and a card deck on the topic and I am a well-known and appreciated speaker and facilitator. :-)
Over the years I have come to meet many misconceptions of testing, like “Testers are failed Developers” and “Your salary increase will drop as a tester” . I will share how I have approached them and how I have worked to change the view of skilled testing, one team at a time.
