Once again in Barcelona, the fourth Game QA & Localisation Forum focuses on QUALITY;
How do we define it?
How do we measure it?
How do we hold ourselves accountable to it?
This theme for the 2016 event picks up where our keynote speaker Michael Gilmartin left things last year - laying down the gauntlet for attendees to challenge themselves to think bigger about the changes they could make within their organisation.
This year, it's time to discuss HOW we can achieve that, and put some practical steps in place to raise the quality bar in both QA and localisation throughout the industry.

"I firmly believe that this forum will change the face of gaming QA. I think anyone who truly cares about the industry should seek to be a part of positive change within it, and the best way to do that right now on a scale wider than one’s current workplace is to be at this forum and meet like-minded individuals. QA came out of the basement a while ago – let’s get up on the stage! "
"We can all make our industry better with events like this. To share a voice, to listen and explore how and why we do what we do is not just a privilege, it is a necessity"
"Very useful, I’ve taken a variety of notes and ideas from speakers and other attendees during networking breaks for discussion and potential implementation"
"Excellent overall, I really enjoyed networking and getting to know the people there as well as take home some useful tips about how different companies run certain processes"
