A few days ago I was at viaqa 2013 conference organised by Davor Banovic in beautiful Osijek. The first half of the day consisted of a few talks. I do not think talk titles are translated to English anywhere, so I will do my best:

The second part of the day consisted of lightning talks. I was the moderator and I was pretty strict in enforcing the rules. Up to five minutes of the talk, and then up to five minutes of discussion. I do not think we have a list of lightning talks documented anywhere, so here it is (again doing my best with the translations):

  • Manuel Vidonis: Automated vs. manual testing
  • Neven Kristijan: Development methodologies and testing, experience report
  • Ivijan Hadija: Stability testing of database queries (tools, optimisations)
  • Goran Bokun: How to make sure there is enough budget to test, experience report
  • Marko Škrabec: Test management tools
  • Karlo Šmid: Journey to stars
  • Tomislav Plavcic: Volunteering for Wikimedia
  • Željko Filipin: From zero to hero

Some of the lightning talks were just a few minutes long, but I do not think any of the talks had less than five minutes of discussion. I always had to cut the discussion after five minutes.

I was one of the proud sponsors of the conference. My sponsorship was to buy juices and cookies.

I was really glad to see Tomislav Plavcic at the conference. He has been volunteering for us since DORS/CLUC conference.

After the talk a few of us continued to talk over a beer. I would like to thank Davor for organising the conference one more time and for hosting my family and me.
