It’s hard to believe, but this year we’ll celebrate the 28th edition of the EuroSTAR Software Testing Conference. Since 1993 we’ve gathered testers from all over Europe to connect, learn and test.
Every year, we got a little bigger – and now we’re thrilled to celebrate 28 years of the testing community coming together in an inclusive space, to share knowledge, support each other, and grow. We couldn’t do it without you!
There has been such incredible community spirit, shaped and nurtured by every single tester and quality professional that has been part of this wonderful journey. To mark our 28th anniversary, we have invited many of those instrumental in the creation and ongoing development of our community to write an open letter to their 28-year-old selves.
“The year is 1983, and it is a long time ago – 37 years. I remember how frustrated you were a few years earlier, trying to figure out how your working life should be.” (Anne Mette)
Each letter is a unique personal reflection, and pens what the writer deems most important to tell their 28-year-old-self – and to remind their younger self what is worth fighting for! Topics range from advice on navigating career decisions and challenges to personal adventures and triumphs.
We’ve got sage advice our programme chair Rik Marselis, Anne Mette describes her eye-opening first time at EuroSTAR, Dorothy Graham highlights the importance of taking opportunities, and more!
Check out our series below. What would you say to your 28-year-old self?
