About Quest for Quality 2017
Software Testing in the Platform Economy World
Quest for Quality is a software testing conference that began its journey in 2016 with a very successful 2-day event in Ljubljana, Slovenia. It brought together over 260 professionals from 12 different European countries and 79 different companies. This year, we decided to bring the Quest community spirit to the very heart of technology – the European Silicon Valley in the city of Dublin in Ireland.
Gathering over 150 high-level software testing professionals from Ireland, UK, and the DACH region, this year’s conference is a unique opportunity to learn about the challenges that Quality Assurance in IT industry faces within the digital transformation.
Software testing in the environments where multiple platforms and application programming interfaces interconnect with each other has become challenging not only for dedicated testing specialists but also for the test managers who must manage things using Agile and DevOps methodologies.
Moreover, the event also offers networking opportunities, giving IT professionals a chance to forge business contacts and build new partnerships.
