About This Panel Discussion
In this session, Gwen Diagram will be joined by three guests, Corina Pip, Dana Aonofriesei and Niranjani Manoharan where they will share different experiences on their strategies and approaches to UI Automation.
This is your opportunity to ask this panel of talented and experienced individuals your questions on this theme. Such as how to solve specific problems you’re facing, what new skills and knowledge to pick up on or what each of the panels like to use in their day to day work.

Niranjani is an enthusiastic engineer passionate about writing code to break applications! She has worked at both startups and well established companies like eBay, Twitter and Pinterest, balancing the challenges at both environments.
She strives to strike a balance between being a workaholic and a wanna-be-traveler, who is openminded but still likes to believe unicorns are real!
Director of Engineering
I started my career in Software Development 9 years ago and during this time I tried different roles and assignments, as Quality Assurance Engineer, Software Analyst, Scrum Master, Head of Product Quality, Engineering Manager in areas like banking, eprocurement, trust economy. I love working with teams, driving teams and individuals towards results and solving problems. A few keywords that describe me: sports, croissants, cheese, good coffee, competitive, positive.
