One dark an stormy night in the end of January last year… well… at least I think it was a bit chilly… I arrived in Copenhagen for the very first international conference dedicated to Context-Driven Testing on Danish soil: CopenhagenContext. Arranged by the wonderful hosts Morten and Anette Hougaard it was drawing a good bunch of familiar names from the CDT community as well as a good few other happy and curious faces. In total I think we were in the vicinity of 50 people.
I’m not going to go through the details here, but I should have written something about it a year ago. Luckily I met a few people there who are way more prolific bloggers than me, who promptly reported on the event. Check it out here:

The only thing I want to add is that the small format (last year anyway) and the somewhat narrower focus made it feel much more like a bunch of friends or family than what you might experience at a bigger event like e.g. EuroSTAR. The bigger events have their own benefits of course, but at least it’s good to have a few different options. I guess CopenhagenContext is closer to TestBash in Brighton (coming up in end of March) although completely in its own way.
This year it’s on again in an even bigger format with a day of workshops and tutorials on each side of the main conference day. February 26-28 is the date and Tivoli Conference Center is the place. Unfortunately attending all three days is way outside my limits at the moment but I’m still trying to make it for the conference day. Maybe I’ll see you there?
Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen
Friendly old girl of a town
‘Neath her tavern light
On this merry night
Let us clink and drink one down
To wonderful, wonderful CopenhagenContext
