Building on the success of the TEST-IT international conferences in 2012 and 2015, the South African Software Testing Qualifications Board is excited to launch SASTQB TEST-IT AFRICA 2016 International Conference.

SASTQB TEST-IT AFRICA 2016 will take place on 14, 15 and 16 September 2016 at the Hilton Hotel in Sandton South Africa.

Themed “Software Quality for Africa” the SASTQB and its partners hope to make this a truly African event, exploring software testing opportunities and finding solutions to testing challenges on the African continent.

Leveraging our relationships with ISTQB national boards in Africa and globally, we’ll bring together ITC professionals from all over the world to share and discuss relevant issues affecting our profession.

Conference highlights

  • Top international speakers will once again share their insight, knowledge and experience, with the keynote address promising to be a memorable event.
  • One of this year’s focus areas has been testing skills, and how to become a better tester. Improving relevant testing skills is at the core of what the SASTQB stands for, and we’re aiming to address this topic during this conference.
  • The ever-popular forum discussion will once again take place, allowing the audience to ask questions to a panel of international testing experts. This interactive session stimulates robust debate, adding to the entertainment value of the conference.
  • We will again award the Tester and Test Team awards to an individual and team nominated by their peers for exceptional contributions in the field of software testing.
  • The inclusion of tutorial sessions in the conference programme has proven very successful in international testing conferences and for the first time these will be included in the days leading up to the conference. The sessions will provide an opportunity for attendees to learn from experts in the field in a more formal setting.
