Highlights from Accelerate 2016

Accelerate 2016 was awesome. If you were there, you know what I’m talking about. For the rest however, here’s some good incentive to register for Accelerate 2017

What made it so great? Here’s a few of the highlights:

Tricentis Co-Founder and CSO, Franz Fuchsberger, getting emotional over Accelerate’s 10 year anniversary

The first Accelerate, 10 years ago, had 80 people. Now we have over 500. Accelerate has grown from a one day event being held in the Tricentis office meeting room, to a conference center and a packed two-day schedule with workshops, multiple presentation tracks, and awesome parties and networking events to top it all off.

The unveiling of the new Tricentis logo

Tricentis got a make-over with a slick, updated new logo. Not only is it sleek and modern, but it is just as recognizable as it’s predecessor. We all know how polarizing a new logo can be, so we are pretty excited that this one has gotten a universal thumbs up. Kudos to our graphic designer!

Tricentis Tosca 10.0

Tricentis VP of Product Management, Gerd Weishaar, introduced the Tricentis Tosca road map, as well giving a sneak peak into many of the cool new features and capabilities in Tricentis Tosca 10.0 It felt especially fitting to be releasing version 10.0 at our 10th Accelerate conference.

The Workshops

Our workshops at Accelerate 2015 got such positive feedback, that we decided to expand our program and add an entire day of free, hands-on workshops with the Tricentis experts. The workshops ranged from exploratory testing to service virtualization, continuous testing, and more. Most importantly, they were a huge success. How do we know that? Well, besides hearing it directly from you, we had a way higher attendance rate for the workshops than we were expecting. That’s the best type of problem to have!

The Photo Booth

You know people are having a blast if they are hitting the photo booth and taking pictures like the ones below before you even start serving alcohol. Enough said.

The Games

We had tons of fun challenges at Accelerate this year. We had old standbys like the Twitter and Feedback Card prizes, along with new games such as the Lego Challenge and the Automation Rally. For the Lego Challenge, people were challenged to design a vehicle using Technik Legos that met all of the challenge requirements – including being able to survive a jump off a 30 cm. ramp – in just one hour. Another popular game was the Automation Rally, a tournament version of our Automation Obstacle Course, with prizes going to the contestants with the highest scores.

The list could go on. But instead of reading forever, how about you just join us next year?
