Nordic Testing Days 2015 was held June 3-5, 2015 in Tallin Estonia.

Based on the amount of traffic on Twitter, it looked like a great conference.

Below you will find some of my favorite Tweets from the conferences while I followed #ntd2015.

I suggest that everyone take a few minute to review all the posts, pictures, and conference slides that have been posted on Twitter.

Thanks to all of those that took time to Tweet!

And here they are….
