Conference description

Belgrade Test is a conference dedicated to software testing, directed mainly towards junior/intermediate testers and students. We aim to provide space for beginners and professionals alike, to exchange experiences, ideas and expand their network. Our long term goal is putting Serbia on the map as a country with a strong testing community, that makes a good final product and delivers the best software testing services in the region.

Conference theme

This year our theme is "Testing as a way of thinking". It is meant to primarily focus on human elements of testing, how a tester should think and what mistakes we make, personal experiences/challenges, and less on frameworks, tools etc. Workshops, of course, focus on the technical and practical aspect of software testing. Feel free to check out this post, written by our program committee member, Andrei Contan.

Tracks

Delegates will be divided into 3 tracks:

  • One Starter track (for students) - this track will focus more on the role of testing in general and software development basics, as well as some technical showcases of what testing actually looks like.
