We are so happy to announce that the Testit conference is back for it's sixth year, following last years cancellation due to Covid. After a long time where we have all spent time apart, we wanted to bring the conference back with the theme ReConnect. We cannot know exactly what the future holds, but what recent events have taught us is that we may not always be able to work in the same physical space. How to we collaborate, communicate and lead in the best possible way when connecting only, or partially, digitally? This we will explore together during this years conference. As always we will ofcourse also have our three tracks - offering a large selection of interesting presentations and workshops on various topics within testing from some of the best local and international speakers in the field. We are happy to announce that Huib Schoots will be holding a Keynote at this years conference. He will also be one of the speakers in a new exciting format for Testit! A panel session, exploring a vital topic for us all - The most important skills for us to learn as testers. Of course we will have sessions on this years theme, on everything from how to hold engaging and efficient meetings to resolving conflicts digitally. Cloud guru Jimmy Dahlqvist is joining us to give a insightful talk on CI-CD, QA engineer Nicola Lindgren will guide us through the tricky area of implicit requirements - these are just a few of this years interesting sessions.
Another exciting anouncement Testit is moving to a new venue - the gorgeous Sankt Gertrud at the heart of Malmö. Here we can offer spacious rooms for both within and inbetween the sessions for participants to spread our comfortably, overlooking the canal and venue courtyard and cobblestone streets. You can attend the conference with a good conscience as Sankt Gertrud has taken various steps toward becoming a sustainable meeting place with everything from serving locally produced, ecological food to environmental energy and wastemanagement. We are convinced that this location, alongside the sessions, speakers, topics and activities we have selected with great care, will transport you from your every day work and fill you with new knowledge, inspiration and motivation.
