Testing is important. This conference is about getting experts and practitioners together to talk, learn and practice
the art of testing. We’re looking into advanced new methods into making our testing more effective, as well as enrich
our understanding of fundamental methods to grow a stronger community.
We’re tired of conferences that feel more like sales pitches than practitioners sharing the craft.
Come. Learn. Do. Teach. Test.

European Testing Conference (ETC) mission is to build a practical conference that raises the bar in the
participants, we bring together testing from developer and tester perspectives in a practice-oriented package
in a dialog culture, aiming for mutual learning of how testing can be done in practice.
speakers, we work against the trend of having to pay for speaking. We start with paying expenses of travel
and accommodation and have a profit-sharing model for all the speakers. We believe paying for speaking attracts the
best stories and talent. Our approach to choosing speakers is collaborative: we speak with our candidates and help
with the right message for us.
software (testing) community in large, we work to financially support speakers of other conferences with
travel scholarships and offering our connections to prospective speakers with local communities as well as mentoring
to improve as speakers. We believe paying for speaking block diversity of voices and want to promote and enable a
variety of voices.
The conference is brought to you from the starting ideas of Adi Bolboacă (Developer from Romania) and Maaret Pyhäjärvi
(Tester from Finland). We partner with local organizations to organize the annual conference. We welcome the software
community to contribute in organizing a people-oriented hands-on conference.
