Here’s what Magnus has to say..

What inspired you to develop this topic as a talk? 

It was during last years UKSTAR in the “Empowering people through play” workshop, where I started thinking that the workshop format would be a fun way to learn and develop storytelling skills. 

One tip for anyone starting out in software testing? 

No one is perfect in the beginning. Mistakes will be made. The best you can do is learn from them. That will make you a great tester in the end. 

If you were on a deserted island and could only bring one item with you, which would it be and why? 

A good knife. It’s probably one of the most useful tools in that situation 

What is the future of software testing? 

Hard to say. I think we will see a heavy reliance on automation and a will from management to automate everything. I do however think that in the end it will prove to be best with a good balance between manual and automated tests.

Join Magnus Pettersson at UKSTAR 2019 for his Deep Dive.  Remember, the spaces are filling up for this so  be sure to book soon to avoid disappointment!
