Let’s explore this world full of new technologies together and let’s find out how to handle them to make the world of QA better.


Tesena Fest was created as an open forum to exchange our experiences and discuss the current trends and practices in software testing. We want to bring experts and leaders in QA together so they could present their insights into the emerging topics and share the latest experience from their projects. Since day one, we had the goal to build a brand that is well respected in the testing industry and is dedicated to the newest trends.

Tesena Fest in Vienna is a one-day conference divided into two sessions. The first session is focused on presentations and discussions. The second afternoon session is more about practical workshops and real hands-on experience. It is going to be an exciting journey into the world of new technologies.

This year’s Report shows that the key business drives underpinning the healthy growth of every major enterprise are the customer satisfaction, cost control, data security, the importance of quality and the measures that are taken to maintain it. Carefully selecting best experts in each area and inviting them as our speakers at Tesena Fest we want to bring you the latest news and generate exciting discussions about the hottest topics in digital world and in particular in the world of testing.

At Tesena Fest we aspire to cover the trendiest topics in the modern digital world. According to the latest version of World Quality Report in 2020 such topics are definitely:

  • Agile and DevOps,
  • Test automation,
  • Artificial intelligence (AI),
