SEETEST 2015: Awards Time
SEETEST 2015 was an honoured host of the fourth bestowment of the International Software Testing Excellence Award. This is an annual prize that is given for outstanding contributions to the field of software quality and this year’s winner is Mr. Erik van Veenendaal, Improve IT Services BV, Bonaire. The award was presented to Mr. Erik van Veenendaal by the Vice President of ISTQB – Mr. Yaron Tsubery, at the end of his keynote speech during the second day of the SEETEST 2015. The bestowment of the award was an excellent end to the speech of Mr. Erik van Veenendaal – “Building on Success” which without any doubt showed us that his outstanding contribution to the area of software quality, he is so willing to share, really helps us build on success.

At the end of the second day of SEETEST 2015, during the closing words of the Conference Chair, Mitko Mitev two more awards were bestowed by him – one for Best Paper and one for Best Presentation.

The award for Best Paper, which was chosen by the Program Committee (14 members from 8 countries) went to Mr. Anton Angelov, Telerik, Bulgaria. The topic of his presentation: 3 Design Patterns for More Reliable and Maintainable UI Test and its content attracted many attendees.

A great success was the presentation of the winner of the Best Presentation– Mr. Claudiu Draghia, Capgemini, Romania. During his presentation “Learn, know and understand requirements” there was no free space in the room and his presentation skills astonished every attendee. The public was unanimous in its vote for Best Presentation.

The three winners – Mr. Erik van Veenendaal – International Software Testing Excellence Award (ISTQB), Mr. Anton Angelov – Best Paper Award and Mr. Claudiu Draghia – Best Presentation had the chance to celebrate their success in advance, during the Social Event of SEETEST 2015 that was held on the first day of the conference in the Military Club. The Social Event not only allowed the winners to celebrate in advance, but also gave the participants the opportunity to have an eye - to – eye conversation with the speakers and have a really great time after the long day of tutorials when they needed to be focused.
The Social Event was a powerful energizer for the second day of the conference, filled with a lot of joy and dances.

Once again, congratulations to the winners!
