In those hard covet times, when most of the testing events are postponed or moved
Just few days after the Agile By Example, there was time for the one of the most anticipated conference in 2018. I only heard great things about it and there is was the HUSTEF in Budapest, Hungary.
Before moving to the conference experience, first I want to give a big thanks to Isabel Evans for helping me to improve my CFP proposal and to fit my long - 45 minutes presentation in the shorter - 25 minutes slot scheduled at HUSTEF. Those shorter slots are challenging, but I would suggest them as a good start for stressed beginner speakers.
What can I say about conference itself?
It has great venue in one of most beautiful city I had seen. The conference organizers prepared for us a speakers dinner and also short, but fun sightseeing with w tour guide ending with a great view on the city centre. Lots of fun stuff in the evenings with great food, games and people.
If You wonder how the program looked like? Imagine names like: Isabel Evans, Tariq King, Rob Lambert, Tomek Dubikowski, Marta Firlej, Mieke Gevers, Niels Malotaux, Gaspar Nagy and many more at single event.
That had to be a blast !!
I loved the content and people, and had a lot of fun discussions with co-speakers. I did not found the Speakers Room, not sure if there was one. That made a small challenge for me to spend whole days with my laptop on my back.
To summarize this was a top 3 conference of 2018 I had a chance to visit. I loved the talks by Isabel and Tariq. Tomasz D. one again won best speaker award. My scores were not bad against such great competition:
