“Michael Bolton is an amazing speaker, his knowledge and passion for testing are outstanding. I wish the Tutorial will have been a bit longer as I had the feeling there was still much more to learn from him. Still, I got tons of insights and ideas that I can apply at my own work as a tester.”
Michael Bolton has been speaking regularly at EuroSTAR. Attendees frequently tell us how much they learn from Michael and benefit from his experience.
