Scottish Testing Group

The aim of the Group is to promote and share excellence in systems and software testing in Scotland.

Two half day events are organised each year to enable networking with other testing professionals and also to provide each member of the Group with the opportunity to gain knowledge to help them improve the testing process in their company.

Though the Group is based in Scotland and is primarily aimed at Scottish Testers, it is open to anyone from the UK who wishes to join. It aims to support and work with the UK Software Testing Specialist Group where and when appropriate.

Membership is free to BCS members. If you would like to be added to the mailing list for Scottish Testing please email Shaun Gauld at shaungauld@hotmail.com, but this does not mean that you are a member of BCS.
