Altom's Mischievous Leprechauns are the winners of EuroSTAR's 2014 TeamSTAR competition

We are happy to share the news! Our colleagues, Ale, Ramo, Rares and Sandra, will be attending this year’s EuroSTAR conference as TeamSTAR. They have already started to make lists with the tutorials and lectures they would like to attend, and hope to do a good job conveying their conference experience through the daily video diary they will be creating.
Thank you everyone for your support!

Lovely day for a video: Altom in the TeamSTAR 2014 competition

We couldn’t resist EuroSTAR’s TeamSTAR competition this year either. We – Ale, Ramo, Rares and Sandra – put on our leprechaun hats and cooked up a mischievous plan to convince our boss to let us attend the conference in Dublin. It took minions, high heels, and a curious app to brew our little video. No need to travel to the end of the rainbow to see it, you can have a look at it here.

Leprechauns treasure their pots of gold. These Altom leprechauns, however, dream of pots filled with votes – and we hope we won’t need to make use of our special magic to get them, muhahaaa!

You can cast your vote here: conference.eurostarsoftwaretesting.com. Voting ends this Friday.

Cheers! 😉

It was a very interesting experience that helped us meet clever and skillful people from Bucuresti, Iasi, Cluj and Timisoara willing to share their experiences and learn from the community.

Meeting James Bach

You heard about him, read about him, read his work… and you think you know what to expect. But nothing really prepares you for it. He’s intimidating and overconfident and at the same time passionate and charming. He’s everything you would like to be one day and he makes you believe you actually have a chance at it. All you have to do is think for yourself and question everything.
James Bach came to Romania for the first time for a workshop we organized in Cluj Napoca …
