Do You Know How To Run Security Checks?


TestBash Home 2020 left a lasting impression on the testing community, setting the bar incredibly high for online conferences. It’s 2021 and we’re doing it again. It was needed last year and it’s needed this year. Yes, we are all zoomed and videoed out, but TestBash is more than watching talks. TestBash Home is a chance to connect with the community, have conversations, share your knowledge, and to co-create the best online TestBash experience we can. I look forward to creating TestBash Home with you.
