F14-11/5: Testing is Priceless – Becoming a Better Tester Doesn’t Have to Cost a Pretty Penny

Track/s: Strategy

As a tester, it’s important to learn and grow every day and to evolve with the ever-changing concepts and technologies that are constantly being introduced. Testing is about learning. Professional testers, those who take their careers seriously, are constantly and deliberately seeking to learn, to improve, and to grow. Learning is a journey that takes determination, but not necessarily a lot of money. How can you make testing PRICELESS for you? And by priceless, we do not mean cheap, or inexpensive. There may be a dedication of TIME and STUDY involved. But the benefits of this dedication and determination will result in a more versatile and experienced tester. Alessandra Moreira shares how each tester can take charge of his or her own career and how self-learning has helped her on her personal journey to become a better tester without much expense.
