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.
Call for Speakers
Ankara Testing Days 2020 will be hosting three different types of sessions. There will be keynotes (regular talks), discussion panel and for the first time at our conference, ignite talks. Ignite talks are series of 15-minute presentations, where each presenter uses no slides, but flipcharts and/or other interactive material through which they can share a burning idea with the participants.
