Scottish Testing Glasgow Event – Wed May 31st

We are in the process of finalising the programme for our May 31st event in Glasgow – working with the theme of  ‘Automation’.

I am pleased to say that amongst the speakers we have Isabel Evans, discussing UX in relation to test tools,  and Dan Martland, Head of Edge Consulting’s Technical Practice.
