Solar Hackathon

During the ages of energy transition, not only the big corporations have the capability to go solar. Innovation has driven the prices of renewable energy so low that each year more and more people can start using solar panels for local energy production. But why isn't then everybody going solar?
Well...that's where You come in to play. It is Your chance to step up and take the lead in accelerated energy transition! This is the event where we give You the tools and a glimpse at a prototype for a total solar service system, we give you the database information for everything you need to know about it, we give you top-notch specialists who will provide mentoring and help, we even give you food for your brains and tummies!

In turn, we want You to develop Your own start-up! Most importantly we want You to show us the front-end of it, the design, which comes together with the process description, the value proposition and a bit of the financials too.

You have the skills for that?

Sign up for the event via getting the tickets (free admission, no worries) and we'll provide You with more information about the event.

NB! The event is oriented towards people living in Estonia (doesn't have to be Estonian though), because the interested parties are looking forward to implementing the business idea in Estonian market.

Meetup by Testlio: Understanding the Business Value of Testing!

We invite all digital professionals and testing enthusiasts to join us as we kick off this year’s first Meetup by Testlio: Understanding the Business Value of Testing!

Testing is not only about detecting bugs in the software, it’s also about measuring its quality attributes. And in this age of consumerism, quality is truly what drives business value. So how exactly does testing add value to a business? Can a company even afford not to test?
These and many more questions will be answered by our awesome expert panelists: Helena Jeret-Mäe (Head of Testing, Nortal), Kristjan Uba (Development Manager, Betsson Group), Tiit Paananen (Head of Quality Engineering at Pipedrive), Einar Roosileht (CTO, Rush Interactive...).

Also, don’t miss a rare appearance by Testlio’s own Head of Sales (coming straight from San Francisco), who will introduce the evening’s topic by tackling some questions on how to sell testing to companies.

You don’t want to miss this, so please RSVP on Eventbrite to ensure entry to the meetup. (tickets are free but limited)!
