Once again the UK and Ireland Testing Board are a “Friend of UKSTAR” for 2018.

UKSTAR is still a new conference, this is only 2nd year.  a two-day software testing conference aimed at UK-based testing professionals. Two-days on your doorstep means less time away from your projects – but enough to harness new ideas and approaches to help make those projects successful.

Testing is now a continuous feature of mainstream development processes. So too, the need for improvement, training and keeping abreast of the latest trends are continuous – the frequency of the gathering of testing’s best minds is more important than ever before.

UKSTAR offers 2-days of introspection and forward-thinking for software professionals who have worked tirelessly to bring testing to the fore and to renew the determination and passion to advance the role of testing in the years ahead.

More details coming soon……..
