Great way to stay current and get ahead in test automation
Joe is an awesome, fun, very personable interviewer and manages to book an impressive variety of guests from all over the test automation space. I was fortunate enough to be interviewed on one episode, and while I can't say I'm satisfied with my own interview performance (as one of those people who fears public speaking and cringes at the sound of my own recorded voice) I greatly enjoyed the conversation with Joe and look forward to chatting again sometime down the line. Needless to say, I'm a regular podcast listener as well! TestTalks is one of the best ways I've found to stay current on the test automation industry and practices.
The way I kick off each of my Monday's!
I started listening to these in early November 2017 with episode 00: Intro Music that aired originally on December 30, 2013 and finished listening to episode 184: Sneak Peek 2018 Automation Guild 2018 Online Conference, on January 4, 2018. Since binge listening to all of these "Awesome" episodes, I make it a point to start my Monday each morning by listening to this weekly, informative and highly entertaining podcast. Test Talks are for people experienced and new, as you get insight into all things automation, whether it’s frameworks, languages, processes, etc.
