Who attended the conference and why?
The Swiss Testing Day conference, first started in 2006, is organized to allow all QA stakeholders to communicate with their worldwide colleagues outside their working environment. This time the meeting welcomed up to 800 attendees who were searching for professional communication, business cooperation as well as testing practices and inspiration.
What was it like?
Held in Zurich’s Kongresshaus on an honorary basis, Swiss Testing Day lasted one day and consisted of three parallel tracks plus an extra track for its partners. The talks and speeches of the event widely covered QA techniques, practices, methods, innovations and management. The schedule also held two keynote addresses, coffee breaks and exhibitions adjacent to the day’s program.
Besides experience reports, this year the organizers were looking for interactive and innovative QA contributions from the attendees as well. The visitors could take part in multiple innovative talks which handled known topics in a new context, or to present their user review shows recounting the tools, approach and techniques used, hurdles faced and experiences made.

The conference had a wonderfully creative atmosphere and BugHuntress participants had a great time there.
