Your dreams don't work unless you do

Presented by: Raj Subramanian
Time: Friday, Jan. 11, 12:15 PM - 1:15 PM

Have you ever wondered what makes you tick? What are the different factors that elevates you to peak performance level and makes you an awesome developer/tester? I was curious about this and went through a journey of self exploration in the past several years. This journey consisted of me identifying different patterns based on my real life experiences developing/testing software, interacting with various people, reading books and doing a lot of research on productivity, mindfulness and self motivation and finally not watching television for 6 months in 2017. Based on this exploration, I realized that no matter who you are, where you are from or what you do; there are 3 key factors that makes people reach their fullest potential and make them a strong tester. Come join this talk, where I share my real life story of how I stumbled into testing, how I did not have proper guidance and had to figure my way out of different obstacles both in personal and corporate life, how I started from being a nobody to who I am today, where I speak at multiple conferences, write for various magazines, mentor budding engineers, share my ideas via my youtube channel and built a strong professional network which has helped me become an influential person who can make effective contributions to the software community. I will share different tips, tricks and tools I learned throughout my career which can help anyone become a strong influential developer/tester.
