Looking back on the last decade

Some amazing events, like 2 podcasts, a book, a blog, speaking events, and teaching has led me to where we're at now.



Looking forward to 2020 and beyond

I discussed what's in store in the next year and moving forward.



A closing quote

Software is a blast. At least, it should be.

I want everyone to have fun writing software.

Leaning on automated tests is the best way I know to allow me confidence and freedome to:




  • rewrite big chunks of code

  • play with the code

  • try new things

  • have fun without fear

  • go home feeling good about what I did

  • be proud of my code
    I want everyone to have that.



That's why I promote and teach automated testing.



I hope you had an amazing decade.

And I wish you a productive and fun 2020 and the upcoming decade.

If we work together and help eachother reach new heights, we can achieve some pretty amazing things

I would be interested to invite you as keynote for PyCon Singapore in June and I would love to know more on your PyTest online courses when it releases.
