TestBash Australia Tickets Are Live Grab Yours Now!

TestBash, our software testing conference, is heading back down under to Sydney, Australia for its second year on October 24th-25th. Not only are we serving up the awesome TestBash single track conference day, but we've got excellent half-day workshops to make TestBash Sydney a multi-day confer-fest!

This year we're located right smack in the center of Sydney CBD, at the coworking space Fishburners.

So, what’s the plan for the week?

Automation in Testing

A 3-day course, from Monday 21st to Wednesday 23rd of October, to help you with your automation in testing challenges.  This will be taught by Richard Bradshaw and Mark Winteringham - this has sold out at every TestBash so far! You can read all about the course over on the event page. Tickets start from $2000 inc. GST.

Workshop Day Thursday 24th October

We have eight fantastic workshops to choose from. Four in the morning and four in the afternoon. There is something for any tester at any level, don’t miss out! Tickets start from $700 inc. GST.

The unmissable workshops we have lined up are:

  • Hands-on Intro to AWS and a Taste of DevOps, for Testers with Theresa Neate
  • Hot Fuzzing with Dan Billing
  • Learn to Code in Ruby by Making Random Sandwiches with Trish Khoo

This will be followed by a meetup straight afterward. A great chance to reflect on the day and meet new people.

Conference Day Friday 25th October

We have a packed single track conference day, have yourself and your batteries charged to keep up with the note taking and conversations that are going to happen! For the early birds, we will start at 8 am with a purely optional, chilled and enjoyable lean coffee.

The conference line up consists of 8 talks, plus the famous 99-second talks that all attendees are welcome to take part in. We’ll also have some surprises added in throughout the day so stay tuned!

Our conference line up has a wonderful mix of local and global talent. We’re sure it will give every tester at any level excellent learnings to take away and apply in their own situation.
