What is something people in your industry have to deal with that you want to fix?
Perhaps I did not face something yet that I can say I want to fix for the Software development industry, improvements are very fast ongoing in the software industry, but in general, it interests me how the automation of some development processes (e.g UI testing automation ) can massively save time and efforts and avoid faults during manual testing.
