Dear Younger Me- A letter to my 28 year old self

2020 is the 28th year of the EuroSTAR Software Testing Conference and an incredible milestone for everyone involved. In those 28 years we have all experienced so many incredible moments in 28 years.  EuroSTAR initiated a series of open letters from community leaders looking back at their younger self. The letters acknowledge all that has come before and shows how each personal journey is important and adds to the community as a whole.

I was asked to provide the seventh letter in the serie and luckily I was 28 in the year 1999. This was an interesting year in IT.

You can read my letter on the EuroSTAR website.

Here you also find the other letters in the series by e.g. Shmuel Gershon, Rik Marselis, Dorothy Graham, Anne Mette Hass, Michael Bolton, Iris Pinkster O’Riordain, Isabel Evans
