TestBash Brighton, our biggest and much loved software testing conference, is coming back next year. As always we are evolving as we feel and see the community change. You can now submit to talk or run a workshop and sign up to our launch list!

The ideas do not need to be new, they could be, however, it is more important that people who do not know a lot about testing should walk away feeling like they understand testing better. Find out more and submit a talk!
