Last week, I attended the virtual conTEST conference in New York. At the conference I gave my talk about my journey from software testing to product management. You can find the slides here.
Some weeks ago, I was interviewed on the same topic on our corporate product medium blog. In the interview I am talking about my career change from a lead test engineer to a senior product manager. Read the complete interview here.

Maybe you have seen the program of the Nordic Testing Days 2018 already. And yes, I made it to the program like last year and I am looking forward to travel to Tallinn in June to meet the testing community over there.
My topic this year is “10 Mobile App Testing Mistakes to Avoid” and this is the abstract and the key takeaways:
In this talk I will share 10 common mobile app testing mistakes and how to avoid them. I will share my knowledge in the field of mobile testing and will present practical examples about the mobile testing mistakes that I have seen in the past 9 years while working with different mobile teams across several mobile apps. The content of the talk will cover topics from manual and automated mobile testing, mobile guidelines, mobile testing techniques and how to release a mobile app without making the customer unhappy.
Each of the 10 mistakes will help the audience to not make the mistakes I have seen in the past and to improve their mobile testing.
Avoid easy and common mobile testing mistakes.
A list of testing ideas to build up a powerful mobile testing strategy.
Useful resources to get your mobile testing started.

I am just back from 3 exciting days in Tallinn attending the Nordic Testing Days.
TL;DR: it was just awesome conference! Plan it for 2018.
And now the long story. Just after I arrived in the hotel, I had only a couple of minutes to prepare for the speaker’s dinner. Looking out of my window, I knew directly our ride for the speaker’s dinner.
Already in the hotel lobby I met many awesome testers and the organizers, like Guna, Helena, Erik, Stephen and many more. Immediately it felt like seeing old friends and the fun started in the train. Look at the pictures. Read more
