Requirements to the talk

Language of presentation

We accept the reports in Ukrainian, Russian and English. It’s your decision in which language the report will be.

Talk duration

The talk duration is 40 minutes. In addition, the audience will have 5 minutes for questions. If there are a lot of questions, you can always continue your discussions in the networking zones.

Unique talk

One of the goals of the conference is the development of both participants and speakers. We believe that it makes no sense to repeat the same reports twice if they already exist in the web. QA Fest is about new ideas, new examples and experiments!

Value

When reviewing submitted applications, one of the main focus for us is how useful your talk will be for conference participants. Therefore, we recommend you to pay attention to this matter when submitting and preparing the talk. Preference is given to talks that are based on personal experience.
