TestBash Netherlands 2019 Tickets Now On Sale!
6th December 2018

On 23rd-24th May 2019 TestBash returns to the Netherlands for its third year!

We’ve been growing consistently and surely over the past two years and as always we are looking to keep the same friendly and learning focused vibe. You loved the format we delivered last year so much, we decided to keep a similar format this year with some added learning opportunities.

We continue to invest in our software testing community in various ways and always put our values and ethics before profit. From the start, we have believed that no one should feel logistically unable to speak at a conference. We have always covered all speakers expenses at all TestBashes, no questions asked.
