Quest for Quality Conference

Forward-thinking Conference on Software Quality and Testing

Quest for Quality is a 2-day forward-thinking annual software QA and testing conference, discussing the latest trends and topics of the quality assurance, bringing together international thought leaders addressing latest challenges of new technologies.

Software testing in the environments where multiple platforms and application programming interfaces interconnect with each other has become challenging not only for dedicated testing specialists but also for the test managers who must manage things using Agile and DevOps methodologies. That’s why we decided for the 2018 conference to put a strong focus on a business aspect of Quality Assurance.

Quest for Quality began its journey in 2016 in Ljubljana, Slovenia, bringing together professionals from 12 different European countries and 79 different companies. In 2017, we decided to bring the Quest community spirit to the very heart of technology – the European Silicon Valley in the city of Dublin in Ireland. Gathering 150 high-level software testing professionals from Ireland, UK, and the DACH region, 2017 conference was a unique opportunity to learn about the challenges that Quality Assurance in IT industry faces within the digital transformation.

The main topic for 2018 Quest for Quality Conference is:


Top terms:
QA in Agile, DevOps, AI & Machine Learning, Blockchain, Edge Computing, IoT, Test Automation, UX

We all know that software testing will change when AI, blockchain and IoT are in full swing. In fact, change has already started and is inevitable. Inspired by the idea that, once they are implemented, these fundamental, world-enabling technologies just cannot afford to fail, we decided that this year's Quest for Quality conference should explore the following concerns:

What will be the role of QA & testers in the realm of new technologies and emerging platforms?

  • How will growing automation, decentralization and machine autonomy affect the skill sets and the head count in the QA community?
  • What will it take to make QA more predictive and less reactive?

How are AI and Machine Learning affecting QA?

  • How to even detect errors in AI development?
  • How to use AI in/for testing?

What are the challenges of testing new append-only technologies, like blockchain and decentralized applications?

  • Do we need new approaches?
  • What factors can unsettle the Agile/DevOps/Continuous Quality route?

How to balance between market drivers, safety & security and shippable quality

  • What pressures will push businesses to afford QA professionals a seat in the boardroom?
  • Will the surging security concerns promote QA and demote the perpetual beta mode?

How many days until the conference?
