One Leader’s Journey Across The Testing Galaxy


Raise your hand if you initially failed to prioritize your automated E2E tests. From having Jira issues with ill-fitting workflows to making well-intentioned assumptions, there are almost infinite ways that we can fail as managers. In this talk, I will share my journey across the testing galaxy with you and discuss concrete examples of failure where I grew as a test automation leader. Why fail alone when there is so much more to be gained by learning from each other? And remember to never give up and never surrender!
