Testers are called on to give advice or information daily as part of their role. How can do we do that in a way that is in the best interest of our team and product without our natural bias getting in the way? Leveraging the concept of the trusted adviser is one solution to this.

6:00pm - 6:30pm - dinner and networking

Elizabeth has been in testing and QA since 1998 (yes, they had computers way back then). Since then, she has taken some time off for two people shaped development projects of her own. She describes herself as “cat slave” to a very large and opinionated Tuxedo Tom who likes walking across keyboards and spilling tea. Doing talks and writing blogs were not something she was comfortable with so she challenged herself to start doing more of them which has led to some fun adventures.
