Februari 2015: So I had been looking to replace my in-ears with something new because the cable was getting worse and worse. I was getting used to my 50 euro in-ears breaking down at roughly two years of age; I had gone to like three or four pairs in the past six years. But this […]
General thoughts after Agile Testing Days 2015

Rediscover your focus
So you’ve been working on the same project for quite awhile. Say, more than a year. Testing the same application, ‘doing yer thing’. I mean, we cannot all be flashy consultants moving from project A to project B in a matter of months. Personally, I like building up a vast amount of knowledge in one […]
