What are people saying?

"Not being a Tester, I was thinking this would waste my time, but that was not the case. It was great to explore the pain points faced by the entire team from the context of Testing. Be prepared to be open to change as this workshop transpired to be a huge catalyst for positive change."
CDL

"I thought the workshop might be too focused but not true. Applicable to all software development. The explanation of story estimation, accuracy vs precision will be very helpful in my work. Don’t expect all the answers but will provide solid tools to help navigate problems with delivery."
Code

"I liked the opportunity for open, safe, discussion and hearing about other people’s experiences. It was a really helpful day and I believe will help our squad perform more due to testing in a better, lighter way."
