TestBash Is Returning to Sydney. Will You Be Throwing Another Shrimp on the Barbie?
6th January 2019

Launching a conference in a new location is hard. Even with the best planning you never truly know what to expect. It's fair to say that if we did have any exceptions of TestBash Sydney 2018, they were far exceeded in every measure. Because of that, we're coming back! 

We're not coming back the same though... just like Arnold we'll be pumping iron in the off season and coming back HUGE! 

Not only will we be serving up the awesome TestBash single track conference day, but we'll be on the hunt for some bonza workshops to make TestBash Sydney a multi-day confer-fest!

We've also begun talks with a new venue space which is truly built on collaboration and is in one of the best possible locations the city has to offer.

Want to speak?

We can't all of the credit for a bloody ripper conference, in fact, the bulk of it has to go to the speakers! 

Do you have a solution to a tricky problem you solved? Do you have a story that you think others will learn from and they must hear? We want talks and workshops that are creative, entertaining, but also educational. Our motto is “Co-creating smarter testers” and we want you to help us achieve this, and although this is a testing-centric conference, don't limit yourself if you have something that sits outside the 'normal' realm of testing. If it's different, but still applicable, let us see it!

You can submit your proposal to TestBash Sydney using our continuous call for papers. We will be collecting submissions until 28th February 2019 – meaning that if you submit before this date your submission will be considered for Sydney in 2019.


After the success of 2018, we wanted to offer more, and as many of you requested us to bring workshops to Sydney, that’s what we're doing in 2019.

We will be looking for submissions to present 1/2 and/or full day workshops on a variety of topics. These workshops do not need to be built on brand new content, but they will more likely be accepted if they tackle practical and modern testing challenges.

If you’ve got something that sounds like that, then submit a workshop!

TestBash Conference Day

TestBash is a very friendly community conference and the right place to break new ground and try out the speaker’s role. To all new speakers and those considering it – let those voices be heard, share your stories with the audience. If you have passion and energy for your profession, this is the place to share it!

To those you are not quite ready, or perhaps speaking isn't your thing, come along and soak it all in. Take advantage of having a bucket load of your testing peers in the same place, all with the same goal... to confer!


If you want to support this awesome event, we are happy to have you as our sponsor. This is your chance to present your brand to a bunch of highly engaged testers.
