Testing with Purpose at EuroStar 2023 Being a QA professional is not a glamorous job. Despite their critical role in ensuring software quality and reliability, their work often goes unnoticed and underappreciated outside the scope of the testing community. Kristel Kruustük created Testlio to address these challenges faced by testers, including bug-based pay, isolation, and lack of learning opportunities. While creating Testlio’s tester-first, global, networked approach to software testing, she watched, studied, and listened to hundreds of software testers worldwide and realized that stories, values, and kindness could be transformational and create purpose. This month, she will give a keynote speech at Eurostar 2023, Europe’s biggest gathering of software testers. The conference will occur in Antwerp, Belgium, from June 13th to June 16th. It will bring together software testing and QA professionals worldwide to share their knowledge, expertise, and experiences. Add to your calendar: Testing with Purpose: How Stories, Values and Kindness Make Testing Better In her keynote speech, “Testing with Purpose: Stories, Values, and Kindness,” Kristel will draw upon her experiences to demonstrate how values and kindness can help us create purposeful testing.
