Telling Testing Stories and Navigating an Agile Testing Transition: An Interview with Bob Galen


Going back to one of your early questions, even if you are an introvert and you hate walking up to someone and you are concerned about bothering them. Overcome that, at least for the three days of the conference, and overcome that. Leave that fear behind you and just put yourself out there and see what you can learn.

CP: All right. Thank you Bob. Once again, that was Bob Galen of Velocity Partners and he will be at STARCANADA, which is at April 5 through April 9 of this year. Thank you so much Bob.

BG: Thank you Cameron. Bye now.
