The Road to QA - An Okayish Success Story


In my career as a software developer I have seen a lot of QA talents transition towards test automation - some of them even turning into developers. My journey was the other way around - from a developer into test automation. In this talk I want to show why this was a natural choice for me, what I learned along the way and why this changed my perception of developers and QA alike. I will also highlight why questioning the status quo can be very beneficial for your own career development.


  • How being a Test Automation Engineer combines the developer and QA roles
  • How to not lose sight of coding
  • How questioning one's career path can be a huge benefit
