If you are happy with your role in software testing, then stay
and love what you do! There is no reason for leaving the role as
software tester.
However, life is not a straightforward path. Therefore, I will
share my personal story. The story from a mobile testing expert
becoming a product manager. The talk hopefully inspires you to
look outside your comfort zone and to explore new things.
