Thank you for the perfectly organized conference! It was terrific and a great opportunity to connect with some sharp minds in the industry sharing their experiences and knowledge. I found both attendees and speakers were energetic to learn what similar problems we are facing in software development and how others have solved them. The sessions were interactive with the top-notch content. Overall a great conference to attend!

I attended the Test Masters Academy in June 2018 both as a speaker and attendee. What a great time! The ability to connect with other speakers and attendees at sessions, group activities and networking opportunities during the conference provided a well-rounded experience. I would recommend this conference to anyone who is looking to enhance their career and take it to the next level – especially if you enjoy learning in real-world settings. I look forward to participating again!

There are today many conferences around the US and around the world. Each of them has its own characteristics, and for the Test Masters Conferences, this is a group of testers that comes together to share and learn from their experience and knowledge. The size and organization of sessions allowed for everyone to take an active role and participate in the conversations, making the experience more personal and focused on each of our own needs.
Anna manages to get great speakers to share and facilitate and this in itself helps to place the Test Masters Conferences among those events that you want to mark on your calendar and try to participate at least once in a while.

The Test Masters Academy Conference is the best conference offered in the nation. I have been to other Test Conference but come back to this one. It offers more real world, today’s testing world learning. I have found those who give presentations and collaboration workshop are the best in the tech industry. The conference is small which give you opportunities to get more one-on-one interactions. I appreciate being able to meet so many testers who come from all over the world to attend. Combine the strength of the presentations, meeting new people and a great atmosphere for learning makes them outmatched for any other conference. I would definitely recommend to anybody who wants to learn in a smaller setting.
Paul Hansen, Principle Tester at Hughes Network Systems
Test Masters Academy brings in experts from around the world to an amazing location on Times Square. As attendees, we have ample opportunity to meet the speakers and dive deeper into testing topics. The group activities are engaging, encouraging participants to rethink the paradigms of testing.
Thomas Haver, Senior Application Architect at Huntington National Bank
Presenting at Test Leadership Congress has been an honor and great pleasure. I did a workshop around whole team testing and the interaction I had with the audience was very engaging. I feel that the theme of the conference itself is very unique and something that our industry needs to take seriously i.e. test leadership. I would like to participate again should there be something more I can come up with to suit the idea. Great job Anna and thanks for doing what you are doing!
