📚 Academia Testarii
”I am very pleased that I had the opportunity to share my knowledge during the "Harnessing the Power of Jira and xRay for Documentation" Masterclass. DevTalks is and will remain a meeting place for passionate people, where I have always found receptive and curious people to learn new things. I think the experience from this year's edition in Cluj was really valuable; I had the opportunity to show how the use of Jira and Xray can transform the testing process and to facilitate discussions about the best practices in this field, together with the participants of the Masterclass, who were very involved in going through the topic. In addition, the organization of the event was meticulous and the team behind it was extremely professional and attentive to details. Everything contributed to an exemplary experience for me as a speaker. I am more and more curious for each edition of DevTalks, and impatient to meet again with the same thirst for knowledge.
(I would like to thank the organizing team and the participants again for this great opportunity. I hope that the information and ideas I shared were useful for everyone present and that we will have the opportunity to meet again in the future.)”
