The Agile Testing Days is an annual European conference for and by international professionals involved in the agile world. This year’s central theme is “Interactive Contribution”.
The program includes various tutorials and keynotes by Johanna Rothman, Esther Derby, Lisa Crispin, Janet Gregory, Linda Rising, Elisabeth Keogh, Gojko Adzic, Michael Bolton, Jurgen Appelo and Lasse Koskella.
The last day is filled with an Open Space led by Brett L. Schubert, Coding & Testing Dojos led by Markus Gaertner and a TestLab led by James Lyndsay and Bart Knaack.
A few consultants of Agile Partner attended the conference last year and were really inspired by the sessions. We will go back there this year.
Hope to see you there!
