TestExpo is just one week away! The UK’s premier software testing event is shaping up to be an excellent event once again with our programme of speakers and exhibitors which now includes Reflective Solutions. Our theme for the spring is ‘Automate & Innovate – the Road to Cost-Cutting’ and together with other companies such as Shunra, IBM and SQS, Reflective Solutions is joining an already impressive line-up of exhibitors.
Along with many excellent networking opportunities and product demonstrations, TestExpo will be strengthened by presentations from those deeply involved in QA testing as well. Among others, Quotium’s UK manager Adam Brown will be discussing security for testers, while Microsoft’s ALM specialist Richard Elwin will share ways to improve the relationship between testers and developers.
The location for TestExpo on Wednesday 23 March is almost as engaging and exciting as the event programme itself. London is no stranger to innovations during its distinct rich history:
- Back in 1926 Parliament Square became Britain’s first roundabout
- The iconic Hackney Carriage (black cabs), which used to be drawn by horses, are still *technically* required to carry fuel for horses. Specifically, a bunch of hay
- Corante, the world’s fist English-language newspaper, was first published in London in 1621
- London is home to the first shopping mall, the arcade in Piccadilly Sq. built in 1819
- Edward the Confessor built Westminster Abbey in the 11th century. He was the first monarch to be buried there in 1066. Later that year William the Conqueror was the first monarch to be crowned in Westminster Abbey. Since then every British king and reigning queen – a total of 38 – has been crowned there. And of course, on 29 April it will host the wedding celebrations for Prince William and Kate Middleton.
History such as this that has shaped the London makes the city a great backdrop for TestExpo as it continues to innovate and inspire the testing community.
See you in London.
