Sting Forum - teSting

When we launched Edge we recognised there was no forum for testing professionals to meet, share knowledge and address the challenges and issues facing us all in software testing.

With that in mind, we started our teSting (Software Testing Improvement Networking Group).

This free forum is a chance to debate the hot topics in software testing and the challenges within organisations, both large and small across a variety of sectors. It is a platform for sharing ideas, opinions and advice with like-minded people who have experience of real-world and practical challenges faced in testing today.

To date, we have hosted almost 50 teSTING's in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Birmingham. We will also be running additional forums in Leeds and Manchester from this year. Topics and dates for the upcoming forums will be published shortly.
