Session: Testing as a valid career choice


I recently switched from a programming job to a testing one and since then I hear a lot of comments from other software professionals why I downgraded my career. But actually, I'm having a time of my life and testing is far from dull, repeatable job as it is usually perceived. I would like to share why testing is a great career and why many of those stereotypes about software testing and testers are very wrong.

What will the audience get from this talk:

Insight into a software testing from a human, not technical perspective. Breaking some myths (low salary, boring job...). I hope that after talk more people would see testing as a possible career choice, not just as a stepping stone or last resort job.
