"Over the last 15 years of working as an automation engineer and consultant, I’ve learned many lessons, often the hard way,” says Bas Dijkstra, Trainer and Director at Inspired Academy. “I want to share with you some of the lessons I’ve learned over the years and how you can avoid making the same mistakes I did.” This event is a vital opportunity to build connections and learn from the experts in the industry in an informal setting.
Each course takes place over two days and each registration qualifies for a total of two hours of one-on-one coaching time to ensure a better grip on the practical aspects of software testing. Says Gilbert: “Each course is jam-packed with interactive training and hands-on exercises. I truly believe that each participant will be fully equipped to be a more efficient test professional and take their career to the next level.”
