The format for TeamSTAR is a little different this year but don’t worry, we have all the information you need right here

 

For the last few years, TeamSTAR has been a video competition where participating teams were asked to create a video which reflects the theme of the upcoming conference. This year we want teams (max 4 per team) to host a local testing meetup in their home town where they will discuss this years EuroSTAR Conference theme:

Learning to test, Testing to learn

The winning team will receive four free tickets to the upcoming EuroSTAR Conference 2016 in Stockholm this October 31st – November 3rd.

TeamSTAR tickets

The competition will be broken into 3 stages: Stage 1 – Submitting details of your proposed meetup. Stage 2 – Hosting your meetup, Stage 3 – Reporting on your meetup. Let me explain a little bit more about what we expect from each stage.

 

Stage 1 – Submitting Details of Meetup

Here we want you to plan your proposed meetup i.e. Where will it take place? What time is it on? What is your agenda for the day? 

Once you’ve decided on the meetup details, go ahead an schedule your meetup using an event hosting website such as meetup.com. After you’ve scheduled your meetup, we want you to submit the details of your event on the EuroSTAR website.

We’ll send you out a box of goodies to help you promote and host your meetup!

(Don’t forget, the theme of the meetup is ‘Learning to test, testing to learn’)

Deadline for submitting meetup details – July 26th

 

Stage 2 – Hosting Your Meetup

By now your meetup details are in, you’ve got an action packed agenda and lots of eager teasers ready to discuss the EuroSTAR theme 2016, so go ahead and host your event!

Here we want you to make sure that everything runs smoothly throughout the day and don’t forget to document everything (take photos, update social media, get testimonials etc.) so that people at home can see how things are going.

Deadline for hosting your meetup – September 9th

 

Stage 3 – Reporting on the Meetup

Your meetup may be over, but we’re not finished yet! In this final stage we want you to write a a blog post about your meetup and tell us all about:

  • How did your meetup go?
  • Who was there?
  • What did ye talk about?
  • What conclusions were made?

and any other information that you feel is important to share.
