Simon Prior: If Universities won’t help us, how do we #MakeATester?

In 2016, I did some research into how many universities cover software testing as a topic in their core Computer Science syllabus and the results were shocking. I then started a social media poll for the skills required to be a tester.

This presentation goes through those results and talk through a series of ideas of how we can raise the awareness of the type of work Testing/QA Professionals do and get people interested in careers in Testing. I will also then talk about the steps I have made since then to start changing the pre-conceived perspectives of Testing.
