About the EuroSTAR Testing Excellence AwardEuroSTAR-testing-excellence-award-1

The Testing Excellence Award is the highest honour awarded by the EuroSTAR Community each year. Since 1993, the EuroSTAR team have been focused on creating great content and long-lasting connections for the software testing community and along this journey, we have had such fun, collaborating with many distinguished testers who have dedicated their professional lives to the craft of software testing.

The EuroSTAR Testing Excellence Award highlights outstanding achievements by exceptional individuals in our community. The Award recognises the people who have most influenced our testing careers – colleagues, mentors, coaches, team-leaders, visionaries, hard-workers and persuasive thinkers … those who help us achieve more, be more, and aim for more by continuously striving for excellence in their work.

The Hall of Fame features 19 EuroSTAR Testing Excellence Award winners and these are some of the most influential members of the global testing community. This impressive assembly of respected winners illustrates the calibre of testing professional with whom this award is associated.

In 2018 we celebrate 20 years of the EuroSTAR Testing Excellence Award. It is the original and longest running recognition of an individual in the software testing industry and we look forward to presenting our 20th EuroSTAR Testing Excellence Award at the Gala Awards Night in The Hague this November.
