Why You Should Go To SauceCon 2018

Posted Sep 25th, 2017

Our second annual user conference, SauceCon, is coming up on March 1-2, 2018 in San Francisco. If you joined us this year, you know it was a great event and we hope you’ll do so again! If you’re still on the fence, here are a few reasons why you should mark your calendar and plan to attend in 2018.

#1: You’ll learn a lot.

We already have a great lineup of industry experts to speak at SauceCon, and it’s growing every day! The conference will feature Selenium, Appium and automated testing experts including Jason Huggins, Dave Haeffner, Denali Lumma, Ashley Hunsberger, Angie Jones, Simon Stewart, Jonathan Lipps and more.

The content these speakers will present will be top-notch, and you’ll come away from the conference with practical information about automated testing strategy and implementation, DevOps best practices, and how to best leverage the Sauce Labs platform that you can put to immediate use in your organization.

#2: Networking, networking, networking.

This conference is a great opportunity to meet and learn from other Sauce Labs users. In addition to the scheduled presentations, we intentionally provide breaks (the “hallway track”) specifically designed for you to talk to others and collaborate about how they’re using Sauce Labs. Whether you’re new to automated testing or an industry veteran, you’re sure to meet others in impromptu hallway conversations who have solved problems you encounter in your own testing.

#3: Lots of opportunities for fun!

You testing professionals love to work hard, play hard and have fun! Last year, we had an awesome party at Coin-Op, where we enjoyed good food, even better drinks, and retro arcade games. This year’s party will top it: we’ll be bowling, playing pool, ping pong and PacMan while socializing over delicious food and drink at Lucky Strike in downtown San Francisco. Also, we heard there was quite a bit of karaoke that went on after hours, if you’re into that sort of thing. You can connect with old friends and colleagues, meet new people and enjoy all San Francisco (and Sauce Labs!) has to offer.

Early bird tickets are on sale now, and if you’d like to speak at this year’s event, submit your speaking proposal by October 16. We hope you’ll be there!
