The Testing Lab Software Testing Workshop gave me an opportunity to execute a testing task with the testing professionals from different organizations, where I came across not only the new Test strategies but also mistakes I was making all along in the test executions.

The Testing Lab Software Testing Workshop by Ajay at TestAway Shimla has actually helped me improve analytical skills, test reporting, defect reporting, questioning skills. What all factors need to be taken into consideration before the start of testing. Apart from it how can we utilise available resources, build and apply existing knowledge.


Jayesh Wankhade

Senior Test Analyst at Softronics

The Testing Lab Software Testing Workshop was structured to enable participants to understand the true nature of Software Testing. The lab helped me to improvise my thought process about testing and evolve my test approach! I now see any app I test along multiple dimensions and that helps prioritise test samples that are relevant to the given context.


Chidambaram Ganesan

Test Lead, Moolya Testing

I would recommend every tester should do this. There is much more beyond automation to know in testing. Ajay has shared his 14+ years of experience in this session and best practise which can save a lot of your time. All kind of questions were welcomes and answers were given. This workshop can act as eye opener. It was awesome spending a saturday with lot of take aways
