The QA & Software Testing Events Guide

Welcome to the QA and Software Testing Events Guide for 2018 and 2019!

You may have noticed that there is a quiet revolution happening in QA and Software Testing at the moment and that the whole testing industry is rapidly growing and evolving. 

It’s time to move away from standard sets of practices and start embracing modern automation tools and artificial intelligence

Traditional manual testing still has an important part to play but in today’s fast paced consumer world - especially in mobile testing -  some of the old testing methods aren’t always capable of meeting the demands of the modern customer

Automated testing is becoming increasingly vital and as testers we must keep up with newer techniques that challenge our old ways of working so we can effectively meet these new demands

Learning automation tools and techniques is only one part of the solution however, and testing will still require a high level of knowledge, innovation, creativity and an understanding of modern customer behaviour

The best way to update your QA skills and knowledge and stay on top of the latest software testing practices is to get out there and learn from your peers at conferences, meetups, seminars and network with the wider testing community

We’re giving you a head start on this by compiling ALL of the UK’s QA and Software Testing Events, Conferences, Seminars and much more covering 2018 and 2019.
