RIDDHI CHOUBE

Associate Test Lead at Zycus

The Testing Lab Software Testing Workshop gave me an opportunity to execute a testing task with the testing professionals from different organizations, where I came across not only the new Test strategies but also mistakes I was making all along in the test executions. I learned a lot of things to be taken care of in The Testing Lab workshop at TestAway, Shimla.

JUGAL SANJAY

I thank from bottom of my heart to The Test Tribe for giving me this opportunity to be a part of testing community through The Testing Lab Workshop after a short one year break away from testing and finally wishing every fellow participants for making this Independence Day 2020 , more memorable and responsible.

RAGHU SAI MUMUNURU

Student

The Testing Lab Software Testing Workshop by Ajay at TestAway Shimla has actually helped me improve analytical skills, test reporting, defect reporting, questioning skills. What all factors need to be taken into consideration before the start of testing. Apart from it how can we utilise available resources, build and apply existing knowledge.

JAYESH WANKHADE

Senior Test Analyst at Softronics

The Testing Lab Software Testing Workshop was structured to enable participants to understand the true nature of Software Testing. The lab helped me to improvise my thought process about testing and evolve my test approach! I now see any app I test along multiple dimensions and that helps prioritise test samples that are relevant to the given context.

CHIDAMBARAM GANESAN

Test Lead, Moolya Testing

I would recommend every tester should do this. There is much more beyond automation to know in testing. Ajay has shared his 14+ years of experience in this session and best practise which can save a lot of your time. All kind of questions were welcomes and answers were given. This workshop can act as eye opener. It was awesome spending a saturday with lot of take aways

GAURAV KHURANA

Definitely recommend The Testing Tribe’s workshop. The instructor, Mr. Ajay Balamurugadas provided detailed insights on how we have lost the actual meaning of testing while trying to wear different hats at our jobs. I could relate to the he said with the core basics that we learnt in our textbooks vs what we do in actual. A must attend workshop.

ANUVRAT SINGH

I read a lot about Ajay’s contribution to testing community and how great he is testing from various sources. Wanted to meet him and learn from him given a chance, got a chance and grabbed it. Really speaking this workshop is a great learning experience which will teach you not only about the real testing also about productivity/effectiveness in whatever you do. I am grateful to Ajay for his patience and time. Thanks.

Sheela SK

Everyone should attend the workshop who wants to test it in the right way . Being mentored by the Expert himself @Ajay , gives a different level of confidence to face the situations in real life . Everyone who wants to unlearn the things ang learn the right things needed for testing should attend the workshop.

Anindita Rath

Ajay helped me to open up my thoughts in such extent that I can proudly own my testing in my work as well as enjoy learning testing. This is one of the best investment I have done in to embark on lifelong testing career. I was able to apply his tips as soon as I have learned them. Also he clarified each & every doubts every member & explained all the pros, cons with real time experience.

Sanjoy Paul

Ajay is versatile tester. The best part is , he teaches to learn more and implement. Nothing is difficult to test if you have interest to learn and understand the goal of testing. His life experiences over tons of testing activities has so much to teach us. Loved the live workshop and the way he explained and shared feedback.

Avishek Behera

Ajay owns the entire session. From starting till the end he goes like an orchestrator. The Testing Lab has everything one tester needs to evaluate him self on the basics. You get three different opportunity to rate your self and see the improvement in single day. Its a really a lab like experience where you learn by doing. Testing in different scenarios with collaborative team and getting immediate feedback is your one of many take away from the testing lab.
