1557 Reasons to Attend EuroSTAR 2015-->
The EuroSTAR Software Testing Conference returns to the Netherlands this year and promises to be bigger and better than ever before for attending delegates. For those who have been in the past, the reasons to return stack up but if you have never attended the leading software testing conference in Europe – here’s 1557 reasons why you should.
1000 – Software Testing Professionals
What better a reason to attend a software testing conference than to get the chance to confer with 1000 testers who live and work through similar experiences, endured and overcome common testing problems or even just to exchange tips on how you can do testing more effectively?
Many EuroSTAR attendees declare that the opportunity to network and share experiences with other testers is even more valuable than what you can learn from the sessions. There are potentially thousands of inspiring discussions – can your company afford not to be taking part in these conversations?
