QA&TEST Embedded is a conference that has been consolidated for years as an innovative international event. Once again Bilbao will be the meeting point for top specialized professionals in testing and software quality and it will be the event where the most current topics in the field will be discussed. QA&TEST will bring together attendees from all around the globe as exceptional speakers from companies such as Intel, ProRail, Bang & Olufsen, Adidas or Emirates who will present share their vision and experience.

26 experts in Testing and Software quality with international recognition will be part of the program of this new edition that consists of two tutorials, three keynotes, two special talks and 18 talks divided into 7 thematic tracks. A very complete program that will deliver intense and very interesting content.

Software testing is a constantly evolving discipline. For this reason, from QA&TEST has grown to be a very didactic conference, with current and updated contents that allow attendees to acquire practical knowledge that they can use in their professional day to day. QA&TEST has become an essential conference to keep up to date in a world that changes at such a speed that knowledge quickly becomes obsolete.

Peter Zimmerer, from Siemens AG, will talk about “Test Architect Boot Camp” a tutorial in which he will present the new role that has been implemented in Siemens: “Test Architect”. A professional profile focused on designing a unified and customized testing system for each specific case, applying innovative software and testing technologies. Peter Zimmerer will explain in depth the responsibilities and tasks of this new professional profile. On the other hand, Federico Toledo, from Abstracta, will present “Testing in Agile Contexts” a tutorial focused on facilitating the management of Testing in agile contexts; that is, in software development projects that are constantly being updated and changing. It is a complicated challenge, since the continuous changes in a project can cause a lot of fatigue and frustration. Therefore, this tutorial will discuss about the different strategies and resources aligned with agile methodologies, mainly within the Scrum system, a structure designed to manage teamwork on complex problems efficiently and productively.

During the Conference we will also enjoy the know-how of Bob Harnisch and Hatim Chahim, from ProRail, company in charge of railway infrastructure maintenance and rail traffic control, as well as Jan Tobias Muehlberg, who will talk about “Defining Environmental Sustinability in ICT”.

QA&TEST will be an exciting conference that will consolidate itself as a unique and unrepeatable meeting point in where professionals of the field will share, innovate and debate about the future of Testing.
