#ATAGTR2017 Meet our speaker series : SANTHOSH TUPPAD


#ATAGTR2017 – Global Testing Retreat – this year’s largest, best and most fun filled global testing conference is definitely an opportunity for people to learn, share and most importantly have fun. Grab a chance to meet and learn from Experts and presenters from across the Globe in #ATAGTR2017.

Among the speaker series we have here one of the invited  speaker  Santhosh Tuppad, who would enlighten us on his topic   No kidding. We need better hackers! Period.”

     About Santhosh :blog2More about him:

# Love to hack to help businesses across the globe (Certified ethical hacker, but I had skills since 16)
# Most people think that I am only great at security testing and that’s not true. I test across functional (I find non-obvious bugs), usability, UI / UX, front-end performance and more
# I love traveling across the world, that’s a lifestyle for me apart from being passionate software tester. Also, when I travel around the globe, I meet testers and discuss testing.
# I am a great HUGGER! Beware 😉
# I love to connect with people and learn from them while I share my knowledge unconditionally
# I am super talkative. Don’t mind!

About Santhosh’s Interactive talk ( No kidding. We need better hackers! Period.) :blog3

Santhosh was gracious enough to respond to some of our speaker introduction questions. Please find below responses from Santhosh

 1.What attracted you to speaking at #ATAGTR2017 this year?   


2.What are you most looking forward to at this year’s conference?

Well, the conference is incomplete without mutual sharing / learning. I would love to give my knowledge to testers at the conference while I would also love to receive the knowledge. Also, have some great fun talks with my friends at ATA.

3.Who is your inspiration? Please share some lines about the same.

Universe and Karma are my inspiration. Nevertheless, when it comes to software testing craft, there are many people who inspire me in various contexts and time. It wouldn’t be fair for my lifestyle if I just pick a name or two, but have gratitude and appreciation to all the folks in my testing community. That’s the power and goodness of our testing community. We all grow together and push the human race forward.

Thanks Santhosh for being candid about the queries. We welcome him to #ATAGTR2017!
