QA meetup:  Presentations Summary

Meetups are one of our favourite events at trivago. They give us the opportunity to learn, share knowledge & experience, as well as network with fellow professionals and enthusiasts in the industry and community.

We recently arranged a QA meetup in trivago on the 22nd of June, 2023 with around 70 attendees and the feedback we received from participants was positive and encouraging.

After the presentations, all the attendees passionately exchanged around various QA topics and made some new friends during the networking session. We loved the vibe of the entire event and can’t wait for the next edition of the “QA meetup”.
