As you may have seen, uTest turned five years old last week. To celebrate, our very own CEO Doron Reuveni posted a brief retrospective, along with this cool infographic highlighting some of the major milestones we’ve achieved along the way. There was also a cake.
I’m horrible with birthdays. I don’t like celebrating my own, I hate the happy birthday song with a white hot passion, and I forget almost everyone’s birthday, every year. Even with the reminders on my phone, I still somehow manage to forget. Case in point: I totally forgot that last week was also the uTest blog’s fifth birthday.
So as a happy belated birthday to the uTest blog, I wanted to share some of the more memorable posts over the past five years. Sorry, no cake and absolutely NO singing! I mean it.
At the time of this writing, our blogging team has published over 1200 posts, so there were certainly plenty to choose from. The list you see here is based off my own preference, not based on page views or number of comments.
So without further delay, here are some of the most memorable posts from the past five years. Enjoy!
