2. Testing is awesome, probably the best job in the world
3. I was one lucky guy
In this story I will tell how I went from a degree in Molecular Biology to software testing.
I quite literally was dropped into testing and it really turned my life around. In one week I went from “meh, let’s give this IT-thing a try and see what happens” to “ Wow, this is the job for me”. I found testing to be THE job for me and I haven’t looked back since.
In my story I will tell why I fell in love with testing, how it turned out to be better, much better than Molecular Biology and why, after all this time, it still keeps me fascinated.
Over a period of 20 years I have seen testing grow from “why do we need these guys, the developers test their own stuff” via “Ok, management says it needs to be tested so let them a go” to an integral part of software development.
This session is one of three stories presented by three different people in a storytelling track.
