Game QA and Localisation Forum 2016 is Here!

Event News

This week, the Game QA and Localisation forum will commence on the 29th. Once again, it will be a two-day conference filled with speakers sharing their knowledge and expertise on game quality assurance and localisation.

Following on from his much-lauded Keynote last year, Blizzard Entertainment veteran Michael Gilmartin will demonstrate not only how he changed things for the better internally, for such a huge organisation, but how others can do the same.

And in the mobile, online, and live operations space, which is the fastest growing area of the games industry, Senior QA Manager from NaturalMotion, Malachy O’Neill, will share how they stay ahead of test quality in a mobile environment. From network testing and sheer volume of device permutations (think: Android) to variable CPU, GPU, and platform capabilities (again, think: Android).

There are 19 speakers this year, with 14 sponsors, and 7 media partners. The Game QA & Localisation Europe 2016 will be held at Tryp Barcelona Apolo Hotel in Barcelona, Spain. So pack your bags, get ready for a two-day knowledge and experience sharing conference, and enjoy the food and beautiful city of Barcelona.
