TestBash Brighton 2024

We’re shaking things up and bringing TestBash back to Brighton on September 12th and 13th, 2024.

09:00 - 19:00 BST
Location: Brighton Dome

We’re shaking things up and bringing TestBash back to Brighton on September 12th and 13th, 2024.

Not only that, we’re seeing that AI is changing the way we think and approach our testing.

We will have one day dedicated to all things AI and Testing.

  • TestBash Day 1: Software Testing + AI
  • TestBash Day 2: Other hot software testing topics

TestBash Brighton will have the extra special homecoming vibes, taking us back to where our testing magic flourished. We’re using it as an opportunity to refresh how we approach our conferences.

Over the years conferences have intensified and focused efforts on speakers as the main contributors. We’re changing this and recognising that it takes many people to make a conference experience feel worthwhile and one to remember.

We no longer solely have a call to speak, we have a call to contribute. There are many ways to contribute to TestBash and we massively appreciate them all.

The Call For Contribution is now closed. Thanks to everyone who has submitted.

Stay tuned for the lineup announcement coming soon!
