About Us:

Welcome to Test Engineering Alliance Meetup, which aims to provide a collaborative, friendly environment where you are encouraged to learn, exchange ideas, discuss and network with other testing & technology professionals.

We hope and we aim to improve the level of testing competency by promoting practical value-adding practices over less effective yet popular practices.

This community will grow with you, so we invite you to join us, participate and help us build a great testing community in your city.

We hold monthly networking meetups and talks, along with organizing training events and conferences.
