TestBash World 2022 - It's Time for a Change with Julia Duran

In this talk, @adhara tells you about her journey from being a Testing Manager to returning to her origins as a Tester, in a profession that has changed so much in the last 15 years. It has not only meant changing companies but also working in a language that is not her mother tongue.

We’ll use this Club thread to share resources mentioned during the session and answer any questions we don’t get to during the live session.
