For the last 8 years I work in ecommerce & software market. For the last 6 years I run SaaS startup. I can talk about both for hours!
However a huge passion a couple of times lead me to burnouts, what caused anxiety, relationship issues and more questions than answers. I think I coped with it quite sucessfully and would love to share this with other passionate people who think they might have a mental burnout.
Tired of hard working job as a cashier or any other boring, tiring job? I have a solution, get to know IT and get a job, where you can have fun, challenge your self, eat free snacks, drink coffe and even beer in the office!
No school, no university, no college.
If you want to learn this, then all you need is practice, which i will teach you!
I am living in Latvia!
Hope to meet you soon! :)

Testing in your own style is a skill to aspire - and that is exactly what I've been aiming to do for the last 10 years. Having acquired a bachelor's + master's degrees in informatics and software engineering from Kaunas University of Technology, I've dove right in & started putting my hard-earned skills in an (agile) practice. I am:
* a director of testing for a carrier,
* a lecturer at KTU for social responsibility,
* a crew member of the single software testing community in Lithuania - Bugs'a'loud for social initiatives,
* a wife and a proud mother of three for personal joy :)
