EuroSTAR is an independent and all-inclusive community where European software testers can collaboratively work towards evolving their profession while fulfilling their professional potential. EuroSTAR welcomes testers through a thriving annual conference and online platform called Huddle.
The annual EuroSTAR Software Testing Conference is a high-energy, fun and friendly celebration of the craft of testing in Europe. It is the longest running and largest conference on testing in Europe with the broadest coverage of topics. It takes place in Autumn in a different European host city each year and aims to foster closer ties between testers across Europe. The conference is held over 4 days with over 60 sessions including tutorials, workshops and talks and also includes an exhibition which runs for 2.5 days.
The conference is community-driven – all members are invited to submit proposals to talk at the conference; speakers are selected by an independent review panel of volunteers and by a programme committee which is renewed each year; the social programme and Expo are carefully created each year with the explicit aim of fostering conversation between attendees, speakers and exhibitors.
Huddle is an online platform which aims to continue the conference vibe and create closer ties amongst testing professionals through year-round engagement of the European software testing community. This is done by sharing quality content from members and recognised industry thought-leaders; by facilitating topical, relevant forum conversations; by sharing and supporting other software testing events and local meetups and by collaborating with national software testing special interest groups (SIGs) in the promotion of software testing, regardless of the schools of thought.
