Here’s what people are saying about the Guild Conferences.

Quality Assurance Analyst

Real world help with issues faced on the job.

I joined the Automation Guild conference in 2017 and was a speaker twice. This event gave me a lot of help with my real work. For example, it helped gives me a different angle to think about a testing problem/issue. I now know all the other use cases for test automation. And for sure, new tools. When you met an issue in your project, it is good to know you are not the only one who has this problem. And then the correct direction to solve the issue is essential too. Our community in the slack channel can totally help you with that.

Future proof your automation framework

Automation Guild 2019 was a powerful 3 days of testing goodness and inspiration. Our team has taken away many valuable lessons. The team is now endeavoring to bring these to life in their test automation projects. For me, the information has been a great help with the validation of the ideas, innovations and plans I've been building for the future.

Test Lead

Discover the industry's latest automation trends.

I attended Automation Guild 2020 to learn more about automated testing. I did just that - gaining critical insights into the tools and techniques that industry practitioners use, the strategies that businesses consider when building an automation strategy, and the industry's latest automation trends. I didn't expect attending an e-conference how well organized the event was and how welcoming the community that Joe and Team have built was. Attending this conference isn't just a 3-day event as you retain access to all conference materials even after the event. Perhaps more valuable than the videos is the opportunity to be part of an inclusive and supportive community of knowledgeable folks that you can tap into as a resource as you develop your career. As a first-time e-conference attendee, Automation Guild 2020 sets the bar high!

Frequently Asked Questions

What time zone is the conference?

All live events usually take place from 10 AM to 6 PM Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) .

I can’t make the LIVE Q&A will there be replays?

If you can’t make a Q&A session live, all live aspects of the conference will also be recorded and uploaded to the site within 48 hours.

To view the recordings of the full LIVE Q&A sessions navigate to the Day content. There should be a row for the full morning session and full afternoon sessions.

After the conference is over I will edit all the LIVE Q&A and place each speakers individual Q&A session under their speaker’s page so you will be able to view their session and Q&A from the same location

How do Guild Conferences Work?

1) Guild online conferences are single track events.
2) All live activity takes place in the EDT/EST time zone usually 10AM-5:30PM
3) I ask that speakers pre-record their sessions ahead of time to ensure the best video/audio quality. I try to also add them to the conference site a week before the event to give folks a chance to watch ahead of time if they want.
4) I ask all speakers to keep there sessions to 25 minutes.
5) During the LIVE conference days, I stream the pre-recorded session followed by the speakers LIVE to take Q&A from the audience
6) All Activities during live conference days are recorded and uploaded to the site within 24hrs.
7) We use private slack channels for questions and communications.
8) The history of the slack channel is saved as a PDF and uploaded to the site after the event as well
9) If someone can't attend the LIVE Q&As they can submit their questions to me ahead of time and I will ask the speaker live.
10) This is like a hybrid conferences/membership site. Attendees can log in to the site and rewatch all videos forever. Videos can also be downloaded locally.
11) All session videos will also have transcripts.y.

How do I register my group?

If you are registering more than one person select the number of attendees from the product ticket page. For example, if your group has 2 attendees choose a quantity of 2 if it has 5 choose a quantity of 5 and so forth. The price is per attendee. Groups of 5 or more get 20% off total automatically on the checkout page.
