Testing Voices 2021

EuroSTAR is proud to present our new exciting, free event for the software testing community – Testing Voices.

Coming to you on Tuesday 29th June 2021 (13:00-16:30 CEST), Testing Voices will explore the experiences of people involved in the software testing industry. Through keynote presentations, a panel discussion and an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session, as well as an opportunity to avail of our networking session, this half day event is about bringing the difficult conversations to the fore. Think of it as a great debate!

At EuroSTAR, we are committed to creating a space for you to talk about what’s important to you, in your work, what you do and how it can define you. Team dynamics, career advancement, working with others, these are often “skills” that we neglect or just rely on our own instinct to navigate. Just as important in any role like technical knowledge is communication and working with others. That is what Testing Voices is all about – exploring the conversations worth having.

Many of us have challenges in our work. It may be your working environment, working with others or communication. Explore some of these challenges (and more) at Testing Voices. Let’s have a look at what you can expect at the upcoming Testing Voices event and why you should attend this FREE event.

Your Value

What is your value as a tester? This is a question that Maaret Pyhäjärvi will ask and answer in her talk “Testing becoming harder to be Valuable” This in-depth exploration of the value of testers and testing. In particular she will focus on the role of testers in the world of continuous releases and explore why testers should be valued as much as software developers.

Different Experiences From Around the World

Have you ever wondered what other testers do in their day-to-day; how they organise their day, how their team works, how testing differs when you are an independent contractor or working within a testing team? Then this talk is for you. This panel discussion moderated by Veerle Verhagen and featuring the experiences of Hanna Schlander, Chris Armstrong, Sanne Visser and Shey Crompton is all about the variety of experiences for different testing roles. “Different Teams, Different Testers” is fore you if you were ever curious how others work and learn from others experiences, this talk is for you.

Career Development

How often have you applied for a role and heard nothing back? Have you been wary of applying for managerial role in your own company but are not sure if you have the skills for the role? Joining us for Testing Voices, Raj Subrameyer “Career Advancement in the New Normal will share his own experiences of being in the position of applying for many different roles. Through an engaging AMA he will share some of his own strategies to adapt to future of work, how you can build your personal brand and how you can and should set yourself miles apart from the competition. This is one not to miss if you are thinking about your future.

Testing Can Transform

One aspect of testing that is rarely discussed is the role testing can play in the business and enterprise priorities of an organisation. Often testing is just part of the process of an organisation’s output and is rarely front and centre in the company’s output or future planning. In this talk Keith Klain will explore just how testing can drive innovation in a company. “Test as Transformation” will show that testing can lead in a business setting new targets, goals and creating new ways of doing things. Keith Klain has over 20 years experience in the world of transformation testing so this is a talk not to be missed.
