Software Engineering & Tech Quality

[31.10.2023 | 8:30am - 5:30pm]

Technology is arguably one of the top most industries where continuous learning and professional development remains essential to career growth. As an industry, we never stand still.

Our Software Engineering and Tech Quality conference held at the impressive People’s History Museum is a deliberately curated day aimed at mid to senior level software development professionals interested at staying the top of their game. We welcome Testers, Engineers, Product Owners, Heads of Engineering, CTO’s, Founders, and anyone interested in cutting-edge concepts and ideas that are circulating in the industry.

There will be exclusive networking opportunities for those with passes to the day, and a full buffet lunch provided to keep you engaged with the learning!
