Nicky Tests Software: About Nicola

About Nicola

Hej!

I'm Nicola Owen, a New Zealander living in Malmö, Sweden.

As a tester I’m constantly looking for ways to grow and learn; whether that be through taking courses, reading blogs or bouncing ideas off people I look up to in the field. I'm currently working on this Skill Development List, which includes not only goals around software testing but also around learning Swedish and Toastmasters.

If you want to find out more about me check out my LinkedIn Profile or follow me on Twitter.

This blog is an attempt to document my learning journey. As I write this blog, I'm sure that my opinions on testing will develop and change. I'm learning, exploring and seeing what's out there.

I'm keen to explore and understand new/different ideas about testing - feel free to reach out to me on deament @ gmail dot com

When I'm not testing you'll find me playing board games and running/gymming sporadically (still working on building that habit).
