About Me

How did I arrive? Here's my short story.... My name is 🔊 Darshit Shah.

  • I am born and brought up in India residing in Ahmedabad, Gujarat with my small family. For me, Of course, life is never that simple.
  • After graduating, I moved to Gandhinagar for a Master's, searching for a new experience, as I was totally committed to further studies.
  • The journey of QA began from a little startup in India, which I came across while hunting for my first gig post-college. Ultimately this choice drove me into the incredible universe of Information Technology.
  • During the initial days of 2010 where I did rigorous testing and landed a Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) and International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) Agile Certified Quality Assurance with 10+ years of Manual Testing along with 2+ years of Automation Testing qualitative work experience.
  • But as the acclaimed saying, "practice makes a man perfect", I improved. Working with colleagues is altogether different from working alone. I had confidence in Batman's decision of working solely, yet when I initiated to work in a team; it opened another door of coordination. In order to maintain an attitude of a solution seeker, I give my best to discover the solution and never surrender at the beginning phase.
  • Always in search of spurs for my career, I’m open to new experiences and challenges to face, wherever they will bring me.

Darshit Shah's Guiding Principles

Certain principles keep me grounded and focused in a right way as for today's businesses it's easier to lose path instead to discover it. I count on the following principles.

The correct way is simply the one that prompts your adaptation of happiness.

We as an individual have various thoughts regarding what joy is, which is the reason we'll do not follow a similar kind of a way. We must be willing to step off the prescribed path and forge our own. Regardless of what your objectives are, in every case there is more than one approach to acknowledge them. Discover yours.

I will work my butt off.

There are countless individuals out there who are more skilled and experienced than me. In any case, I am certain that nobody else will fill in as hard as me whenever given this chance.

I am a self-starter.

I don't keep an eye out for other's consent to deliver excellent quality and solve problems.

I am persistent.

I will do as much iteration as it takes to arrives at the best solutiony.

I am beyond willing (i.e. desperate) to educate out more and improve.

I continually keep searching for approaches to better my specialty and gain from individuals who are far superior to me.

For me, clients are the #1 priority.

I believe that interfaces and functionalities exist to be utilized. They should not get in the user's way and should instead adapt to user's needs and lives.

I invite critics of my work.

I have zero egos and anticipate critics as they generally bring about a superior venture.

I prefer to assist individuals to achieve their objectives.

I believe to inspire everybody around me through the several actions that I exercise, were knowingly or unknowingly I learn, and the joy I can impart to other people.

Achievement or disappointment, I need the fulfillment of realizing my outcomes are my own.

The best rush in work/business is to encounter the achievement that you made yourself. Disappointment and stumble will occur en route. That is regular. At the point when they happen, get up, gain, and move ahead.

The best and most exceedingly terrible things in life are typically the things that happen unplanned.

At the point when any awful thing occurs, learn a lesson from it and pledge to not repeat the practices that permitted them to occur. Also when beneficial events tag along, explore, and figure out how to invigorate better things like them to occur. That is called making your own karma, which is a far better choice than attempting to control the uncontrollable.
