testing expert conference

TAPOST (Theory and Practice of Software Testing), one of the leading testing expert conferences, will mark its 20th anniversary this autumn with the most ambitious agenda so far. The conference will take place on October 8-10, 2019, in Riga and will gather hundreds of international participants and high-level testing and program development experts in the National Library of Latvia. This year’s theme for the conference is “Test Fast & Benefit Continuously”.

The TAPOST conference will begin with a hackathon on October 8. During the hackathon teams will demonstrate their ability to solve the test automation task within a limited time frame, develop a testing plan, and provide the required quality in the process. Participation in hackathon is free of charge.
On October 9, during the second day of the conference, participants will have a chance to attend master classes led by experts and speakers of the TAPOST 2019. Visitors will have the opportunity to gain new knowledge in the workshops on topics such as automation of testing, robotics and critical analysis in the testing process.
On the third day of the conference experienced industry professionals, including Michael Bolton, Gwen Stewart, Rhian Lewis, Ingo Philipp, Seretta Gamba, Girts Baltaisbrencis, Szilárd Széll, Roj de Kleijn, Gáspár Nagy and others will present their speeches on the most important topics, technology and innovation in the program testing field. This year, special attention will be paid to look into accelerating testing automation, as well as discussing how faster and more efficient work delivers continuous long-term benefits.
“It is remarkable that this year TAPOST is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Maintaining the topicality for two decades has been a major success for any event, especially in the ICT sector, where topics and trends are changing very fast. It is proof that testing and quality are of great importance both locally and internationally, and the TAPOST conference has proven itself to be an important meeting place for industry professionals to share experiences and knowledge,” shares Signe Balina, President of the Latvian Information and Communication Technology Association (LIKTA).
“The quality of software and testing do not lose its importance. Nowadays, with the systems becoming more complex and giving them a higher level of automation and decision-making, the software testing profession is becoming more responsible. The annual testing conference helps to grow professionally, gain new knowledge and inspiration for future challenges,” adds Gatis Oss, Chairman of the Board of Latvian IT Cluster.
