What is the difference between just another digital product and a product people fall in love with? I believe one of the main components is quality!
Coming from a design world I mostly tackled the visual part of quality in the past; creating products that were intuitive, visually pleasant and useful. A couple of years ago I started exploring the mechanism behind digital products and started studying web development. As I began to understand the part behind the mask, I started noticing all the possible ways where things can go wrong. Sometimes there is an error in the code and other times users have their own way of using the product. The latter being the fun part of quality assurance - being a thousand different profiles in a day.
I spend most of my afternoons and weekends working on my hobby projects and studying transactional analysis - a psychoanalytic theory and method of therapy wherein social transactions are analysed. Therefore it is applicable to different situations in life, not just in therapy.
When I have some free time left I like to spend my time in nature - hiking or biking or in my dancing shoes. And I just love long weekends when I have time to invent new recipes and finding perfect wine pairing for it. Fun fact: my personal record in time spent preparing a dinner is from 11am until 8pm the next day (with a good night sleep of course).
