About Test Automation Days
Test Automation Days is a unique conference focused on test automation. This year the main theme was: Test Automation in a Continuous World.
In a world where everything needs to be continuous, has Test Automation also evolved into a continuous process: delivering software, testing, learning, creating value, etc.? How do you adjust to a continuous world? How do you keep up and deal with continual change relative to Test Automation? Or do you think that “continuous” is nothing more than hype to put extra pressure on everything we do?
This year the conference was expended with an extra day. The conference started on June 19thwith an in-depth, hands-on masterclass day. This day was all about learning by doing. The masterclass day was sold out in advance.
The second day was filled with inspiring keynote speakers, and experienced practitioners to share their vision. There was plenty of room to share and expand your network. To get an idea of the conference, please visit the impressions page with pictures and videos of the 2019 edition.

What did we notice?
We visited a wonderful conference, with an open and friendly atmosphere. All visitors were very keen to learn from experts and to share their knowledge. The conference rooms were all very nicely equipped and the foyer for the catering was decorated well. We have spoken to many people and all of them were very excited to be there. We noticed this is really a unique conference for this target audience, we have never experienced this before.
We look forward to the 10thanniversary edition on June 17 & 18 2020 in Utrecht!
