The era of digitalization has made users particularly demanding. A single bug can have a critical negative impact on businesses, leading to huge financial losses that can amount to several million euros per hour in certain sectors. On October 4th, the Luxembourg Software Testing Event is going to gather all the testers, QA, and digital practitioners from Luxembourg and the Greater Region together in Luxembourg-City. We asked Sylvain Perez, CEO at q-leap, the software quality company who organized this event to give us an idea of how it will look and why it’s not to be missed.
What is the aim of LSTE?
The aim of the Luxembourg Software Testing Event (LSTE) is to gather all the testers, QA and digital practitioners interested in exchanging, learning and networking on the main trends of software testing together. Trends that are at the heart of the changes in IT and which translate into a sharp evolution of software testing practices.
Why did you choose to organize such an event?
Many countries in Europe already have a major annual event around software testing. Also, the IT ecosystem is becoming increasingly important in Luxembourg thanks to the movement of organizations’ digitalization. The idea came naturally to bring together all the software players in the Grand Duchy. Over the years, the LSTE has gained a reputation of being one of the key and most awaited events on Luxembourg’s IT agenda.
