Ioana Barhan & Elena Pirtica

Software Testers

Anyone who has the opportunity to meet Ioana can be considered really lucky. Being a person with great love for people (and any other creature on the planet), curious, spontaneous and always eager to help and improve the things around her, she manages to inspire the people around her and reveal the best in everyone.
With more than 12 years of experience in testing,  on projects of various complexities, in smaller or larger teams, Ioana wanted to share the knowledge and expertise acquired so there was only one step left towards the role of trainer and she managed to successfully model good professionals in the software testing field. Ioana always adapts her teaching methods and, through simple and easy-to-understand language, she manages to optimally combine theoretical information with practical applicability, thus awaking the students’ desire to explore more.
 
 
 
 
Elena is not only an enthusiastic Software Tester, but also one full of patience, and empathy and who supports people at the beginning of their journey (and not only) with everything she has learned in those over 10 years of her testing career.
In addition to her job as a tester, she is also a trainer at a company that conducts courses for those who want to become testers and helps those who make the reconversion to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to become a junior tester.
She believes that the key for a team to work, is collaboration, transparency, passion and support, that’s why she also had the role of Scrum Master in different teams and she helped create the collaboration between team members, protecting and supporting the team when was needed, being a bridge between team and client.
Beyond being a tester, she enjoys reading personal development books and cooking sweets.
Elena is eager to meet new people and discuss common topics with those who will be attending the Peak IT conference.
