Zeiss (HU)


I work as a test team lead and manager at Zeiss, but deep in my heart, I am a test engineer specializing in automation. I have been working on different application types: desktop, web, and mobile apps. Lately, I have been interested in the soft skills of testing, especially on difficult, challenging projects, looking for solutions to bring the team to success. I also teach people at Masterfield who want to learn software testing. I'm keen on the accessibility standards and how to test them properly.

Ethical Testing
Session Speech


We usually research technical skills when looking for the reasons for the failure of a release or an application. Ethics should be ranked much higher than they are. Ensuring that software was tested thoroughly sticks more to the soft skills than technical skills. Ethics can protect people and companies from failure, money or reputation loss, or even harming somebody’s health. Ethics can ensure maintaining trust inside the organization between the employees and even outside of the organization – when selling a product. By adopting ethics in software testing, teams will be able to build apps that are more safe and reliable. Testing is usually very well described from a technical point of view: functional and non-functional tests, pyramids, and test automation frameworks. But what are the principles of the ethical testing?
