Life has its unique ways of balancing things out. After spending 14 years of testing software, there are a few lessons that help and remind me of the ongoing journey. Some of the lessons got me fame and some taught me to be grounded. While I am proudly remembering a few lessons, some bring tears. I would not call any of them as mistakes. I would rather call them as dots whose importance can be probably realized only in the near future.

Through this talk, I would like to share some of the lessons which I feel will resonate with you and also act as a timely reminder to some of you. I am not here to inspire anyone, it is a friendly talk highlighting the key lessons from a decent 14-year-old career.

What is in it for you:
– Know what it takes to build and maintain an online portfolio
– The first steps to success and how to avoid the mighty fall
– How can software testing become a career and not just a job
