So, if you are on a testing or development team, or in an IT product department and you want to get started working with test automation or managing a unit that will make use of test automation, then join this workshop.

NB! Changed to physical attendance


The current restrictions allow us to conduct the workshop with physical attendance. There will be 20 attendees and 1-2 facilitators in a big room allowing a safe environment for everyone. Attendees must provide a negative Corona passport when entering the workshop.


Plan B: If we see some complications relating to Covid19 we will turn to our backup plan, which is splitting the workshop into two half-day sessions on 22.06.2021 and 23.06.2021 from 08:30-12.00 on both days. You are then expected to attend both days.
