We've brought the best speakers in the world to bring you the knowledge you need to stay ahead of the curve in the automation testing. Make sure to check out our all star lineup below!
You need to keep learning. One of the most rewarding ways to do this is by attending conferences. Unfortunately, sometimes it's difficult to make it to a conference due to travel costs, the price of the conference ticket, or your ability to take time off. Save yourself heaps of time by not having to travel to a conference and try to be able to fit it into your busy schedule.
At traditional conferences many times you end up missing a session you really wanted to attend. Or you forgot something that the presenter mentioned. Watch each session as many times as you like!
So you will be able to listen to the talks at your own pace.
Not just powerpoint presentations - real world examples. Our goal is to have as many high quality screen share sessions where the presenter is actually showing real world examples rather than high level slides.
With your paid registration, you’ll also have lifetime access to all the conference videos, so you can look back and watch on your own schedule. If you can’t make a Q&A session live, all live aspects of the conference will also be recorded and uploaded to the site within 48 hours.
In addition, you’ll receive access to the Automation Guild conference site and all its content for up to a year after the conference is over, affording you the opportunity to download it to your own device(s) where it can be kept for as long as you wish.
The Automation Guild is awesome! Thankful for Joe putting the hard work into creating an amazing conference
Great to hear you're planning on another conference next year..Thanks for doing this Joe. You have definitely hit a 'sweet spot' in our automation community and made us proud!
Thank you so much for organizing this conference, it was very informative and inspirational. I learned a lot that I will use to fix my code in accordance with the best practices. I met new people and discovered great new blogs and testing resources. Loved the format of the conference! 5 Days commitment is a big thing if you work, but the ability to watch presentation beforehand, or review later - was very helpful. As I said in the past -- devs at my company were jealous - they are looking for conferences in the same format. So thanks again, and looking forward to participate next year
I have been looking forward to this conference since I signed up in December. It far exceeded my expectations. Well done Joe!
Thanks again for doing this conference. I'm SO happy to get this more advanced knowledge to help improve my automation. The training classes I've taken in the past have been more basic level, unfortunately, so it has been challenging to get this kind of information presented here this week. I've learned about new tools at this conference that I didn't even know existed. I'm looking forward to applying some of what I learned, when I get back to work next week.
Thanks for the conference. It has been awesome! Best value I've seen in a testing/automation conference.
Just wanted to say thanks for the excellent work on the automation guild. I've viewed some very valuable sessions throughout the week and have already started planning on how to best use some of the concepts and ideas shared by the presenters.
I could not have asked for a better way to start my year! I had a great time at the Automation Guild Conference 2017 with Joe Colantonio where the panel of speakers consisted of some of the best & brightest of the industry. A big thank you to Joe! This was a great gift to the test community.
