Will I be able to access the presentations after the conference?
Absolutely! We will retreive the presentations from the speakers. Shortly following the conference we will send you a link to access them all, should you want to refresh your memory on learnings from the sessions at a later point
How does it work with the three tracks?
To enable every participant to tailor their experience to what they are most interested in, we have chosen to offer three different sessions in parallel for three timeslots during the day. During this time you simply attend whichever session you want! We do however recommend, if there is a session for Track 2 or 3 you really want to attend, to try and arrive early to secure yourself a spot. This since these rooms have limited capacity. Keynotes, opening/closing ceremony and breaks are shared by all participants, and area held in the Track 1 room. Each session that preceeds another will end around 10 minutes early so there will be plenty of time to move between rooms.
In which language will the conference be held?
We want Testit to be as accessible as possible, for this reason we aim to hold the conference as much as possible in English, including the sessions and other participant information. There is the possibility of some singular track session being held in Swedish, in this case it would be clearly stated in the programme both on this site and at the event. Our Testit staff however speaks both Swedish and English(and a few more bonus languages!) so you can always feel free to contact us via phone, email or during the event in either language you prefer.
How do I best get to the conference?
The conference will be held at Comfort hotel located at Carlsgatan 10 C, 21120 Malmö in Malmö. The venue is only 128 steps(!) from Malmö Central station to which you can connect with train or bus. If you are arriving by car central Malmö offers a large amount of parking options, including one right behind the hotel. Traveling in by air is also convenient with Kastrup Airport only being 25 minutes trainride away from Malmö central station. The venue being a hotel also mean that if you are traveling in, you can literally stay at the venue! Walk on over to our registration desk right after breakfast - just don't forget to change out of the pyjamas :)
Is prior knowledge, or access to any specific software or hardware required?
A big focus for our conference is to make it both accessible and interesting for professionals of all different specialities and experience levels! One part of this it through offering three different tracks, so three different sessions running in parallel, all with different focuses. Through this you are able to tailor your day to your personal taste and interest, attending the sessions you wish. The conference as a whole is created with a focus on testing, but there are always some session with a broader focus on IT, management or other associated areas which means that other IT professionals can also attend the conference!
In case prior knowledge, specific skills, devices or software is required to attend a session this will be clearly stated in the session abstract - on our page as well as in the program. If no requirements are stated it is appropriate for anyone to attend, and you need only bring yourself!
What payment options are available?
We offer both secure payment through Paypal, in this case you pay during registration, and invoice. If you select invoice as your payment option your invoice will be sent to you after the conference.

What is it like to attend the Testit conference?
Our vision is that the conference can be both an educative and inspiring place, where participants and presenters can share ideas and develop together – all in one day! The sessions are carefully selected to suit testers and other IT professionals with various specializations and knowledge levels. With the venue, entertainment, competitions and other activities we try to offer not just knowledge and skills, but an exciting meeting place and a day you can walk away from filled with new inspiration and motivation.
