This year was the first time that workshops were offered the day before the conference. I did not join them yet I only heard good things about them, so that's an option to consider next year. For me, TestBash Germany started with a nice pre-conference meetup where I met many people also from the local community again!
The next day, the conference started. The wonderful Alex Schladeback agreed to live blog again so check out her great posts linked below to get a good impression of the presented talks. Besides that, here are the sketchnotes I created on the day.

The conference day was over, yet conferring was not. Many joined the post-conference meetup where I had wonderful conversations with so many awesome people - about everything testing, how to treat each other well, and the world. Thank you all for a wonderful time!
