I still remember the days at 2008, that NSN has held an internal Test Automation conference at Finland, kind of all NSN Test Automation professionals from all over the world gathered together and share their experiences and learns. That’s so good!
Now it’s 2013, 5 years later, Agile is more and more popular, therefore Test Automation becomes more and more important as well, to server the Iterative & Incremental Development. But, it’s not an easy job, it wasn’t, and it never will. The master the piece, you need to both practice a lot and also learn from others a lot. Now there is a great opportunity for you to learn experiences on Test Automation from others, the Test Automation Days 2013! June 20th 2013 at WTC Rotterdam, with pre-conference workshops. Well, I couldn’t confirm yet if I will be there myself, er, as a participant… but you, should not miss the opportunity. Check out the details below:
Here are their keynote speakers: Prof. Dr. Arie van Deursen, Emily Bache, Matthew Heusser, Lionel C. Briand, Mieke Gevers.
