Meet the Keynote Speaker | Bas Dijkstra

Written by Published in News

We are happy to announce the first (and keynote!) Speaker of 2019 edition, Bas Dijkstra!

Bas is a test automation trainer and consultant. He takes pride in helping teams and organizations improve their testing efforts through smart application of tools.
He consults with clients to help them take their first or their next step in test automation, or to help them get unstuck when they feel that their current test automation doesn’t provide the value it could.

Bas is an experienced trainer on various subjects related to testing and automation, delivering workshops and courses in house with clients and at conferences both in the Netherlands and abroad on a regular basis.

When he’s not working he likes to run or to read a good book (particularly British detective novels).

In his keynote, Bas will dive deeper into why good test automation acts like the brakes on a car, why a lot of test automation projects end up like a brake job gone horribly wrong, and what you can do to make your test automation allow you to go faster by acting like a good set of brakes. You’ll see plenty of examples from test automation projects I’ve seen and worked on in my 14 years as a consultant, the mistakes I have made and how these could have been prevented.
