  • Story # 234
    Once upon a time, there lived a tester, who still
    is living, by some name that doesn’t matter.

  • Slide 56 Why I got the NLTE award & you didn’t!
    I read books that you were supposed to but might not be reading.
    I interact with people who are smarter than me & you too were supposed to be interacting but might not have.
    I am trying to build a good heart whilst building a good mind that you were supposed to but might not be building.
    I practice testing & problem solving that you were supposed to but might not be doing.
