This talk is the output of more than a decade of active deliberation and observation on what makes a tester world-class. It is all about what YOU can do to become more skilled, more satisfied in your job and more hirable to the high-class companies you look up to.
We will keep this session real and talk about concrete steps and ideas you can implement immediately. You will also hear real stories about testers and how they did it. You will be able to choose among the presented ideas and start implementing them today.
This session is less about complaining and more about concrete actions that will help you to become a better version of yourself.
