Putting experience to the test: moving from Tech Comm to Software Testing

A session at TCUK 2015 | Technical Communication UK

Thursday 1st October, 2015

10:45am to 11:30am (GMT)

Can you—a technical communicator—become an effective software tester? What skills will you need to develop? What necessary skills do you already have? What added value can you bring to the testing team? And as a newly-qualified tester, what useful lessons can you share with your Tech Comm colleagues?

In November 2014, Raymond Gillespie decided to find the answers to these questions by leaving the world of Tech Comm to become a software tester at Nokia. Ten months into the experiment, Raymond is ready to try to answer these questions and share some illuminating anecdotes about his experience.
