- Where you see Software Testing in future (in next 5 to 10 years)? More integrated to the development test cycle. The test automation will be important part of testing, but test analysis and test design will play significant role.
- Is testing long-term dream job forever or just on step/stop on your life journey? I do not plan so far. Can be both, but evolution is important and I would like to meet new opportunities to move. It doesn’t matter if in testing or another job, the quality matters across all jobs and industries.
- What is the biggest obstacle or roadblock in SW testing that is slowing down improvement and innovation? People mindset and their attitude are critical for any projects and any phase. The same is with testing.
