What’s in the Name? with Martin Hynie
We had an amazing and thought provoking session with Martin Hynie. Find out more about the talk here. Here is what our participants say:
Really interesting experiment and talk
I have recently changed my title in the resume from Test Manager to Delivery Manager. It seems the industry is moving from functional titles to business titles. Yesterday’s talk confirmed it.
Very thought provoking talk. I always realize that a job title with any ‘tester’ implication will hinder ones growth into a non-tester role within today’s organization structure. A tester will have to work twice as hard to break into other roles (e.g. business analyst, project management) if one day he/she no longer to join a position that does not involve testing/QA etc.
That said, SDET these days is a different story, this role is basically a programming role. SDET can migrate to a developer role much easier (if a SDET chooses to do so)
Here are the fantastic participants and Martin 🙂
