Zurich Testing Night

On April 11 in Zurich, together with Accenture, Tricentis and Delphix, we invited you to our free community evening.

With our motto Beyond Boundaries: Testing Tomorrow with AI Today! we turned the "German Testing Night" into the "Zurich Testing Night"!

Once again we had entertaining talks, an exciting exchange of experiences during our fishbowl discussion and great community feeling during our networking event, followed by a get-together with finger food and drinks!

You want to take a look back?

Here is our agenda:

5.00 PM: Welcome by our hosts Davide & Ulrich

5.40 PM: The age of AI co-pilots has started - How it affects Test Software and where does it lead?  

GenAI has the potential to make us dramatically more productive and can solve hard tasks that we did not see good ways they can be solved before other than by human brain. Join me in discovering how Tricentis approaches augmenting its products and where we believe current technology can take us going forward. Testing software and solving testing problems will become smarter and more intuitive than ever before.

Dive into the world of DevOps test data management. In my presentation, I unveil how our groundbreaking platform is revolutionizing the development cycle.

Through advanced masking, we protect sensitive data while maximizing performance. We don't just offer a solution; we create a transformation. Discover how you can accelerate the speed of your testing processes, unleash the innovation power of your teams, and ensure data privacy simultaneously.

6.55 PM: Rise of the machines – How GenAI revolutionizes QE 
More and more IT professionals are discovering how GenAI can already make their daily lives easier and how much potential is still hidden. Tool providers are also racing to offer AI features and position themselves on the market. Where will this rapid development take us in the short and medium term and how will it affect our daily work?

7:15 PM: Fishbowl Discussion
All of the day's speakers will come back together to discuss with all of you. What was not answered in the Q&As, what else is important? Here we work it out together.

Following the event: Networking and Get-Together
No community event without the community: Come and chat while enjoying drinks and finger food! All free of charge, of course, but certainly not for nothing, because you will make valuable (new) contacts!
