The Scottish Testing Group was originally started in 2002 with the aim of connecting testers and those working in quality across Scotland. Since then our remit has grown to include testers and quality professionals worldwide.

We endevour to hold two conference style meetings a year (one in Edinburgh and one in Glasgow) – however, since the pandemic we have moved our sessions on-line.
