Lessons learned from building tool for testers

My team and I have been building tools for testers. We got it a few times wrong and we got it a few times right. I have been interacting with people who have been building tools for testers and been gathering notes to understand the challenges and joy they are having.

There are going to be people in the future who want to build tools for testers and through this talk I want to make their lives simple by sharing my lessons learned.

I will be touching upon pointers of:

  • What kind of tools to build for testers?
    What kind of tools to open source?
    How do you work on adoption?
    How much money is there in the tester tools market?
    How does focus geography change the tool you build?
    Should you worry about the marketing layer?

Come by, sit at your home with your coffee and enjoy this simple plain English talk.
