I am back from EuroStar. I’ve got lots to write about EuroStar: the people, the lectures, the Test Lab, the venue.

Shmuel Gershon replied to Priyank Shah's discussion Difference between Technical Tester Vs. Functional Tester
"I doubt anyone can tests functions without the use of technique. I doubt too that anyone can use techniques while testing without  considering the function(s) involved. So the dichotomy makes no sense in my view."
