The successful Malmö conference for testers by testers is back again this year. We are proud to present a full schedule packed with sessions covering a broad range of interesting topics by awesome speakers from many different companies.
We are once again placed centrally in Malmö (right next to the central station!) on what's come to be our favourite day, the 12th of September.
Our track Illities focuses on non-functional testing, something all of us could get use of in our daily work but perhaps aren't sure quite how to. This track will provide tools, tricks and motivation to make your everyday work a little more exciting.
Our second track contains several gems from testing. Learn how to involve quality early through QA kick-offs in our tutorial or find out something we're sure everyone wants to know – Just how do you make SBTM work within waterfall?
This year we have grown and extended the conference by one track! We are happy to welcome the project managers into our Testit family, allowing us introduce a broader understanding regarding testing and opening up for many interesting discussions between our roles. With a tutorial like RiskStorming by Ministry of Testing and a session from our very own Iris Pinkster this track is bound to be amazing.
As usual we have three exciting keynotes lined up. This year they will be held by Fredrik Folkeryd, Daniel Karlsson, and Christian Brødsjø, who will hold the session voted as the best at Eurostar 2017: The Sky is The Limit - How To Test A New Airport Terminal.
The biggest question is, how will you ever be able to pick between all of these fantastic sessions?
For more information on each presenter, please see below.
We hope you are as excited as we are about this year's Testit because we hope to see you all there for a day of great fun, plenty of new knowledge, endless inspiration and connecting with both old and new Testit friends.
See you there!
Location: Malmö Börshus, Skeppsbron 2 , 211 20, Malmö
