This meetup we are hosting Santhosh Tuppad and Gina Enache with topics that are unusual and one of a kind.
Topic 1: “A bit of everything in Testing” Talk – Interaction & Demonstration Based by Santhosh Tuppad
Even though the world has an image of Santhosh Tuppad being an expert in Security Testing which is true, but he is basically passionate about Testing and tests across functional, usability, performance, user experience, load across any software with expertise in web, mobile and internet of things.
In this talk, Santhosh is going to have an interactive session by asking questions, challenging the audience to solve a problem with creative approach. The whole talk will be hands-on testing. Prepare yourself to ask any question to Santhosh Tuppad while he takes you on an exciting journey with his talk. You can feel free to bring your laptops if you wish to.
– Finding out that there is so much in testing as any other profession
– Why it’s important to focus on skill-based testing and getting rid of or transform from traditional and shallow testing to power of testing.
– Unleashing the power of learning
– Getting to know which were not known before and feeling excited that you know such things.
– Fun, Fun, & Knowledge.
About Santhosh Tuppad
Santhosh Tuppad has played different roles in his life which include being a passionate entrepreneur, liar, lover, boyfriend, husband, thief, software tester, blogger, reader, trainer, coach, black-hat hacker, white-hat hacker, grey-hat hacker and what not. In this amazing journey of life, he has experienced his salvation. Not to forget that “Salvation comes at a price” and of course he has paid that price. Before he was known for being merciless, ruthless, unkind, evil etc. And today he is known for kindness, humbleness, and some people call him “Privacy Fighter”. Santhosh is also one of the OWASP Cheatsheet Contributor and shares his knowledge on Security and Testing unconditionally. The world finds his ways “Unconventional”, but he thinks that it’s the best 😉
Note: If you see Santhosh, just go and hug him. He is also known as a “Hugger” and laughs a lot on his own jokes when other people are trying to understand his joke.

With possibly enough testing skills acquired, its of utmost importance for a tester to keep a healthy state of mind. The second topic exactly addresses this.
Topic 2 The Story Within. Mind & Body Cooperation by Gina Enache
Gina Enache invites you on a journey in which she will explore how the filters through which we see reality are formed, a journey into the fascinating world of the brain. She will discuss how the biology and psychology are intertwined and how our life experiences shape our perception of the present situation.
The strategies through which we deal with daily stress have a significant impact on our well-being, how we relate to each other, as well as on our professional life. These strategies have been formed as a result of the experiences we have had. From a neural standpoint, the experiences we’ve had determine who we are today.
The development of resilience and the associated skills have never been more necessary. The good news is that resilience can be learnt – the brain is able to reshape the meanings we give to certain situations and the ways in which we cope with difficult situations.
Why this subject? In a world that’s permanently changing, we are often challenged to experience feelings of insecurity and unpredictability. How do we cope when things don’t work out like we planned? What do we do when it’s harder to recover from challenging situations?
In order to cope with this climate, to have good relationships, good health and also be productive and thrive at work, it is essential to learn from experiences and to move forward optimistically. During this workshop she will discuss how patterns are formed and how we can enrich and transform them so that we don’t remain captive in our own mental traps.
