We invite all digital professionals and testing enthusiasts to join us as we kick off this year’s first Meetup by Testlio: Understanding the Business Value of Testing!
Testing is not only about detecting bugs in the software, it’s also about measuring its quality attributes. And in this age of consumerism, quality is truly what drives business value. So how exactly does testing add value to a business? Can a company even afford not to test?
These and many more questions will be answered by our awesome expert panelists: Helena Jeret-Mäe (Head of Testing, Nortal), Kristjan Uba (Development Manager, Betsson Group), Tiit Paananen (Head of Quality Engineering at Pipedrive), Einar Roosileht (CTO, Rush Interactive...).
Also, don’t miss a rare appearance by Testlio’s own Head of Sales (coming straight from San Francisco), who will introduce the evening’s topic by tackling some questions on how to sell testing to companies.
You don’t want to miss this, so please RSVP on Eventbrite to ensure entry to the meetup. (tickets are free but limited)!
