Bridging Gaps, Building Connections: A Hungarian Testing Story
The beautiful Hungarian city of Budapest seems to be characterized by bridging gaps and building connections. Two diverse parts of the city, Buda and Pest, are separated by the Danube river, which gave them the opportunity to be connected by the iconic Chain Bridge. Budapest is also the birthplace of one of the most brilliant and influential scientists of the 20th century, John von Neumann. Neumann made significant contributions that “bridged” multiple areas including mathematics, physics, economics and computer science. In the software world, you may have already heard the name “Földházi”. But if you haven’t, Péter Földházi is a Hungarian tester who believes that testers themselves are bridges to many things including successful releases, better collaboration and communication across roles, more diverse teams, and connections between man and machine in the age of AI. Join Péter as he weaves a story that for the first time combines the software testing profession with Hungarian culture and innovation as well as a little splash of imagination.
