July Video Interview

This month, we've had an interview with Carson Underwood ( @cunderw ), a fantastic QA industry expert.


Watch the interview to learn Carson's background and the advice he is giving as an industry expert for people who are just starting their carrier!


You will see Carson at SmartBear Connect this year. He shared a sneak peek of his speech and promised to serve his best barbecue at the conference Smiley Wink.
