History of HUSTEF


HUSTEF is one of the premier conferences in Europe for practitioners in all areas related to software testing. The conference was founded in 2011 by the members of the ”Hungarian Testing Board” with the aim to have an annual platform where the best from the software and IT R&D sector can exchange information about new developments in the industry. HUSTEF has grown to be one of the biggest software testing events in Europe, with more than 670 attendees from all over the world attending the 2018 conference.
