SIGIST means "Specialist Interest Group In Software Testing", the term was created by BCS The Chartered institute for IT in 1989, and has therafter spread all over the World.
In 2016 SIGIST Global was started and we were approached if we wanted to start a branch here in Stockholm. Said and done, in the beginning of 2017 we had our first conference.
The main objective for SIGIST Global and all subsidiaries:
We want to increase the competence in the Testing and QA industry and create both a better environment for professionals and a place where you can go and learn about the latest in the industry without having to pay loads of money.
We want to spread the knowledge that test and QA is very important and should be treated so.
The focus is to hire Industry Leading speakers to our Conferences that will bring us the latest methods and techniques.
About the conferences:
The basic language will be English to enhance the reach for this Community to other SIGISTs over the World.
If a speaker strongly wants to speak in Swedish, this will be communicated prior to the Conference.
There will be 2 Conferences per year, and soon we will add educations to the services.
We will have sponsors that will be presenting their products and services in the mingling area on the Conferences.
We will create a networking Environment where testers can openly speak about their trade and gather knowledge over the Company borders.
