For our first time in Poland, we decided to attend to TestCamp conference. TestCamp is an event-based in Wroclaw, Poland. Test Army is behind the organisation. This event was split in two days, the first one, we trained a few people on OctoPerf. The second one as exhibitor and speaker. More than 500 people attended on Saturday, which is quite an impressive number.
Like past year, the
2018 edition was organized in Anaheim, California, at the Disney convention center. Techwell is behind the organization of this main event.
Quite a long trip for us to fly from south of France to the west coast. But on paper it was supposed to be a good call since about 1000 attendees were registered for the show, as well as 54 exhibitors.
And frankly speaking, the opportunity to spend some time in California is always a good incentive!
We attended the Agile Testing Expo in Danvers (Boston area, Ma) about one week ago. It was the first edition of this event in the US after several successful editions in Germany. We handpicked this event as a part of our Expo tour in the US. A convenient area for us to travel as several of our customers and prospects are located in the Boston area. In this IT business where a lot can be done remotely, we always enjoy meeting face to face with our supporters to share some good talks.
The expo was organised in the expo hall of the Hilton DoubleTree hotel. Count a 30 minutes drive North of Boston to reach the place. On the event, every exhibitor had a small corner to display its materials, no large booths, only a table and room for a couple of banners. We made the call to display our colors and openly communicate on JMeter and our basic strengths (Easy scripting, Intuitive design, Live results). A good call as we were the only company to communicate about JMeter among our competitors. A good keyword when it comes to performance testing. This is something we experienced at StarWest in October also, it drags people's interest.
