About Cassandra

Picture of Cassandra HL

 

Hey!  That’s me ^^^

 

I’m a tester and UX enthusiast with a past life in IT recruitment, sales and banking.  I’m very passionate about all things testing and software production and have also performed the roles of product owner and business analyst.

 

I started this blog as a way to reflect on my own thoughts, share them with others, and learn from those who are kind enough to comment and share their own experiences with me.

 

I also speak at international industry conferences and events.  It’s really wonderful to have audience members approach me with their feedback and stories.  I love being part of the community and hope that I can inspire others to do great things.

More about me:

  • I like problem solving and finding out how things work
  • I don’t like unnecessary use of fancy terms that most people don’t understand
  • I like cats
  • I don’t like seeing tester Twitter tension
  • I like honest feedback and constructive criticism
  • I don’t like coffee
  • I really like Super Mario, and collect Mario t-shirts
  • I don’t like the implication that anyone can test well, or that testing without automation requires little / no skill
  • I’m a self-proclaimed hippie and believe that we greatly influence our own experiences of the world
  • I don’t like negativity, aggression, or -isms
