Background and Focus

For 2022 our flagship conference TestExpo, Agile & DevOps Expo returns to London with a new co-located track Low Code Expo. You can now choose to attend in-person in London or join online from anywhere in the world!

Agile, DevOps, Testing and Low Code/ No Code have shared environments that facilitate working together. Spurred by greater demand for excellence, these methods are more than simply adopting new tools and processes. At this conference we plan to discuss current topics and practices that is designed to connect a wide range of stakeholders and provide informational as well as and educational experience for all.

Expert practitioners and thought leaders will help you to develop your business case and build the foundation towards getting significant return on investment. Practitioners bring new perspectives and ideas of innovation to this conference. They show how to be resilient in this ever-changing unpredictable market and also be able to focus on boosting productivity, reduce time to market, cost, and resource investment.

The day will show you how to leverage modern technologies to deliver a fully unified customer experience. You can catch up with all the new tools at the exhibition that is held alongside.

FORMAT OF THE PROGRAMME

The programme will have a plenary session of keynotes on the four topics (Agile, DevOps, Testing and Low Code) and then separate tracks on each of them. Delegates can attend any presentation from any track throughout the day.

We will also feature extended knowledge-sharing discussions in Round Table sessions for sharing insights and industry trends. This session will be in a panel format for thirty minutes.

Code of Conduct & Diversity

UNICOM’s Code of Conduct & Views on Diversity

We at UNICOM strive to be a leading provider of knowledge to the business community and to engage the global business community as a specialised provider of knowledge. We strive to do this maintaining a culture of co-operation, commitment and trust. We want every UNICOM conference and training day to be a safe and productive environment for everyone – a place to share research and innovation and to build professional networks. To that end, we will enforce a code of conduct throughout all our events. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

Our approach is that our events are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity or religion. We do not tolerate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, Twitter and other online media. Event participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers. Please bring your concerns to the immediate attention of the event staff.

Diversity: In our endeavour to be the provider of knowledge to the business community, we understand that this depends on hearing from and listening to a variety of perspectives that come from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, sexual orientation, and military service. We welcome diverse speakers for all our events, we do not always fully achieve this goal, but it is an ongoing process.

Call for Participation

We are inviting speakers – thought leaders, subject experts and start-up entrepreneurs – to share their knowledge and enthusiasm about their work and vision in these three fields. Please let us know too if you would like to participate in panel sessions only. Please also get in touch if you would like to participate in the Panel session.

We understand that successful projects are written up as “White Papers”. Please share these with us. But projects that did not achieve their targets – “Black Papers”- are of interest to us too. They can be important topics of discussion / panels where you can present. Talk to us about both, we welcome your input.
