About us

The "Magyar Szoftvertestelői Tanács Egyesület" – Hungarian Software Testing Qualifications Board (Hungarian Testing Board for short, HTB) is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2007 with the aim of supporting the development of professionals dealing with Hungarian software testing, software quality and related fields, our community its construction.

HTB is the exclusive representative of the ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) in Hungary, and as such is the domestic examination organization for the "ISTQB Certified Tester" exams, which are the most popular in the field of software quality and are accepted as a worldwide standard. We are proud to be able to provide the Hungarian testing community with the opportunity to obtain any ISTQB certification!

In addition to the ISTQB examination, we are also the domestic examination and competence centers of other independent, international professional organizations closely related to the achievement of quality software products and testing. These organizations are the IREB in the field of requirements management, and the TMMi in the field of testing process development.

In addition to examining professionals and ensuring international standards, in connection with the above goals, in 2011 we established the HUSTEF (Hungarian Software Testing Forum), the largest independent conference dealing with software and product quality in the Central European region, which was also highly rated internationally.

In addition to HUSTEF, we have other independent professional initiatives, such as the free, regularly registered "Test & Tea" group, which currently holds more than 2,500 registered members, and the "REevolution" meetup groups, which embrace the business analyst profession in Hungary. Both initiatives regularly organize meetups with well-known speakers at various locations around the country.

Our wide-ranging membership includes professionals from the IT industry consultancies, Universities and training centers. Diversity is important for us: we especially support the younger generation and the presence of women in the profession.
