Making learning my top priority

In this experience report I will talk about how actively trying to prioritize learning helped me overcome the fear of failing, as well as skyrocketed my development as a tester. It's a story that starts with me bailing out from a major test conference, scared of being perceived as a lousy tester, and ends with me being a presenter on a similar conference one year later. I will walk you through my actions and decisions. Actions like setting up a development plan and adding small challenges to all my learning activities. Decisions like not accepting my own excuses. It's been an amazing adventure so far, I hope I can inspire and help you experience it too!
