Software testing conference #1 in Ukraine

Can you believe that QA Fest turns 5 years in 2018? For us it is an important milestone. From small local event we became the main software testing conference in Ukraine.

We would like to celebrate this date by inviting really famous figure. Not the one who sounds like a broken record, operating with boring terms from certifications or again and again repeating benefits of agile testing. But the person who knows the essence of the software testing. The one who can move you to the new level of your professional development.

Friends, this year Michael Bolton will attend QA Fest and Ukraine for the first time! Michael is a great speaker, more than 15 years writing for the most popular software testing magazine Better Software. His blog contains a lot of useful materials for test engineers.

Together with James Bach he created Rapid Software Testing methodology. He attended tens of countries and finally will visit Ukraine. Welcome our guest!
