Femmegineering Meetup by Sigma Software
5 min read
Sigma Software Group continues to contribute to equality and highlight female role models in today’s booming tech industry. In 2022, Sigma Software decided to boost the Femmegineering project, created by Danir Group, and scale it to the emerging European tech markets like Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, and Portugal.
The goal is to support women refugees and local women to join the tech sector and build successful careers. The first event will take place during the Perspektywy Women in Tech Summit 2022, one of the biggest events for women in IT in Europe. The project includes educational technical meetups, IT courses by Sigma Software University and career stories of female engineers on a Femmengineering platform.
On June 8, tech speakers from Sigma Software will share their inspirational stories and tech experience in software testing.
About the speakers

Anna Koreneva — Senior Test Engineer at Sigma Software. She has 10+ years of experience in Software Testing. Her work experience doesn’t focus only on the testing, in parallel, she actively participates in the establishing/improving projects’ development lyfecycle from designing app parts to the developed increment acceptance. Good analytical skills helped Anna improve product quality, make an evaluation, predict the process-related risks, and boost the overall product growth. She acts as Test Engineer Lead and builds test processes from scratch in various tech projects.
Topic: Switch off the red light to your productThe role of a test engineer can sometimes be blurred assuming its core responsibility lies in bug finding. However, the software tester is a greenliner of the product whose helicopter view helps detect and highlight risks and even possible business gaps. During the meetup, Anna will share how the testing process becomes an essential map of the product growth. Based on her case, she will explain which approaches to use and pitfall to avoid, and how to build the test process in dev teams with a lack of time and resources.

More about Femmegineering
Femmegineering is an initiative that aims to build a female programmers community by launching educational events, providing free access to IT education and mentorship by industry leaders, as well as organizing hackathons to power innovative solutions for a better world. Founded by Danir Group in Sweden, Femmegineering aims to contribute to a more equal technology industry by making female role models more visible and creating an inclusive environment where they are equipped with the tools and resources to build successful careers in the tech sector.
Sigma Software Group decided to take the initiative to a new level and scale it to the Emerging European countries. Since most of the refugees who fled from Ukraine are women and are sole breadwinners for their families, this initiative will practically help families affected by the war by creating job opportunities for women.
