ABOUT ANKARA TESTING DAYS 2020

Turkey’s Premier Software Testing Conference

Ankara Testing Days is one of the longest-running and most respected community organizations on software testing and quality assurance in Turkey. Until it has been converted into a great international conference, the event had featured 11 meetups since 2014, hosted more than 2000 curious individuals and covered a wide variety of some of the hottest topics in the software testing field. This year’s conference motto is “Testing at the spot where Humans and Technology converges!”. With our roster of guest keynotes, experienced practitioners and the experts from different domains, we would like to explore the impact of technology on the human side of software testing and we would like to highlight how testers can transform their organizations into innovative, efficient, and sustainable places of the future.

WE ARE ONLINE!

We look forward to welcoming you to the first online edition of the Ankara Testing Days on 13th & 14th October 2020.

Due to the restrictions of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are moving this year’s conference into the virtual space so you can enjoy the conference from the comfort and safety of your own home. We’ve also extended the conference into 2 days, so you can attend different workshops from subject matter experts through the second day.

For any questions, you may contact us by using our contact form.
