Testing Roundtables

Announcing a New Way to Learn!

For many experienced software testers, there can be a natural limit to what might be learned by sitting in a classroom and listening to a lecture, regardless of the expertise of the speaker or the topic of the presentation. Many of our most serious challenges cannot be overcome by attending an educational session which is designed to address a process, strategy or technique. We are pleased to introduce a new way to dig deeper into the specific questions you have. Introducing Expert Roundtables at STPCON, a new kind of session designed for experienced testers looking to get answers to testing’s toughest challenges. At these sessions you will be discussing the issues with other experienced testers, attendees and presenters. The conversations will be facilitated by conference track speakers. The topics for discussion are submitted by conference attendees and chosen for discussion by the facilitators prior to the session.

Participants are encouraged to submit their top challenges. PLEASE NOTE: Each session will be limited to 30 participants. In order to ensure that the session is productive, participants will be expected to share their expertise while gaining insight and solutions to the topics that are selected for discussion.
