“Before this event, I had attended several SQA Days as a speaker, both in Russia and Belarus, and I really enjoyed the experience. I was excited about the first SQA Days in EU, so I submitted my talk almost a year before the conference.
I arrived in Riga two days before the Conference, to have some time for sightseeing. The city center is quite small but nice. There are many narrow streets, churches, bars… and of course, beer! I met with a few other speakers and we went to something called Latvian beer tasting. Interesting concept. Some of these beers were really good. But let’s talk serious now.
As always, I have collected some ideas below or sometimes quotes, sometimes my own associations. I never remember exactly the categories after the conference.
I really enjoyed my talk. There was a good atmosphere in the room and many interesting questions.
My talk was scheduled for the second day of the Conference, so I had an opportunity to attend other talks on Friday. Here I have summarised what was interesting for me.

I attended only half of the talk and it was a good one, in my opinion. Here are some highlights:
A lot of nice ideas but also fun, as always.
I had my talk in the afternoon so I could not attend all of the talks, but I visited at least a few of them.
It was a good introduction to TMMI. However, it would have been much better with real examples and lessons learned.
This was an excellent talk. The speaker was great and some of the ideas and jokes were brilliant.
This was a very nice conference and I am glad I was part of it. See you next time!”
