“I had an amazing experience at Testflix 2021. It was indeed very special to me as I was making my debut as a speaker. The experience was seamless as it was a very well-organized conference. The audience was also very supportive which made it even easier for most of the speakers. While I visualized my talk I also had a set of learnings to take back from the presentation experience. Taking some tips and learning from other speakers also added to it. Already awaiting the next edition of Testflix. Had some great moments along with my family and close friends who cheered me so it was indeed very special,” said Mahathee Dandibhotla, Senior engineering lead quality at Persistent Systems.

“Conferences are pretty common nowadays. But conferences with Atomic talks? Quite interesting right. Yes, that’s the idea of TestFlix. 100+ speakers all over the world and every talk is less than ten minutes. This was my first year at TestFlix. I prepared and sent my talk a few months before the event. Since it’s just the streaming of pre-recorded events I watched the conference as an audience. The entire two days were planned and organized in a clear manner,” said Pricilla Bilavendran, Senior QA Engineer at Billennium.
“I loved watching my talk along with a few of my favorite people. That was a great feeling. I had a lot of my people in the audience who were so encouraging and actively commenting. They are all really kind to make every speaker feel special. I really felt special. That’s one of the close-to-heart conference talks I did. I will cherish these memories. Hope my talk was useful to at least a few. I had loads of learning from other speakers, they are all amazing. I will definitely be a part of upcoming events with The Test Tribe and of course excited for TestFlix2022,” she added.
