The STARWEST 2021 Experience—Attend In-Person or Virtually

STARWEST is one of the longest-running and most respected conferences on software testing and quality assurance. In 2021, we plan to offer you a hybrid event—for the first time! This fall you may choose to attend in-person in Anaheim to enjoy a full week of networking with a more face-to-face learning experience (adhering to all local CDC guidelines of course). Or join us virtually if you are unable to travel or prefer to socially distance. Both attendance options will bring you exciting learning and networking opportunities that will cover a wide variety of some of the most in-demand testing & QA topics. We hope you and your team will join us.
