Welcome to “Highonblog”.

Who am I?

I am Surbhi Aul. I think of myself as an extremely committed, forward thinking & capable individual. By Profession I am a Test lead and works in Software testing domain .I work for a startup with just about 100 employees.

This is my first blog post and I will use “Highonblog” site for my favorite topics on random and scattered thoughts.

Isn’t it the first step to making good friends?!

Started my career as struggling tester and moved Sr tester with the focus on Salesforce ecosystem. Today as test lead,I am managing  team of committed/capable QAs .

I have grown by learning the basics of manual testing, moved to advanced testing ,mobile testing & Salesforce testing. I have sufficient knowledge to help individuals in their career in Manual testing. My passion is to Cook, Spray paint or do Sand art .



I would highlight some of the recent milestones from my career outside of my company.

 1.STWC: Software Testing World cup: Participated in Semi finals- ASIA 2016

The Software Testing World Cup 2016 (STWC) is a tournament for all testing practitioners around the globe. Testers gets chance to show off their skills and compete with other international testing professionals. It brings the testing craft into the spotlight and gives the profession a competitive event on a global scale.

2. Bugathon- Participated along with my colleagues.

International Crowd testing competition in association with QA agility bought to us by Agile testing alliance. This competition happened in Campassite- Bangalore and we participated with other 100 + Software Testing professionals.

3.India testing league – One of the Semifinalist in INDIA TESTING LEAGUE -2016

ITL 2016 is an annual Software Testing based contest for corporate professionals in India & Purpose of this contest is to identify India’s most knowledgeable Software Testing professionals.

People,with experience ranging from 6 months to 18 years and roles ranging from Software Engineer to Project Lead and CEO.  KPMG has presented and Unicom ran ITL 2016 in Movenpick Hotel Bangalore.

 4.Testathon: Won Most active QA award

Testathon is an event for testers, being conducted in India for the first time at the Facebook office in Hyderabad.  It was the 5th event organized by Testathon, the others being in London, Stockholm, San Francisco, Cluj Napoca. On ‘D’ day we tested some amazing apps with some of the best testers and won a whole load of prizes. Me and My colleague participated in the Testathon & we were selected amongst a 1000+ applicants from well-known IT companies across India. Followed by initial screening , we  joined the final 50 testers!

Apart from this I have got many appreciations by my employers.

Why I am here?

I have guided People who are passionate about testing and Professional and Personal aspects. It’s probably more useful to share my idea in site.Other people can take something from it and it can help them in their career.

What are my intentions?

In this site you will see posts on my experiences, testing, Cooking, Passion or on random stuff.

I have no idea about blogging and like to share knowledge or learnings. This Post is to present my thoughts and intention for making “Highonblog” site.

I was stumbling around and it took me 1 month to decide about my first blog. This was the high time to “jump in” and start writing a blog.

With less supervision, I have learnt many things in Software testing world and in my life. I will be writing many posts on my personal experience. I believe, the lessons learnt from struggle stays with us for lifelong.

How can you connect with me?
