We are excited to again be participating in the PNSQC event two weeks from today!
The line-up includes great speakers covering topics like:
- Who owns Quality?
- How to build a workplace people love by adding Joy
- Trends, Tricks, and Traps in Quality
And many others focusing on scrum, lean start-ups, AI, IoT, and more.
Stop by our booth and say hi to Krista, Jim, and Torrie and of course, we’ll have our famous jotters along with other treats.
If you haven’t registered yet there’s still time, check out the PNSQC Website: https://www.pnsqc.org/2017-conference/
Hope to see you there!
The Pacific Northwest Quality Conference is next week, October 17-19, in Portland, Oregon and we are very excited to be attending and participating again! We love this conference as it attracts a diverse audience from near and far and is such a great community with a size that enables us to meet new colleagues while also being able to reconnect with those we already know.
This year’s conference is centered on cultivating quality and includes two days filled with great keynotes, invited speakers, and position papers and one day of in-depth workshops. A bonus this year is that each day begins with coffee, tea, and yoga. Seems a great way to get centered and caffeinated for the day and ready to learn and connect with others dedicated to quality in software.
Some notable things we look forward to checking out:
- Keynote: From Software Tester to Leader: How to Take a Radical Leap Forward at Work, Peter Khoury, Magnetic Speaking. An effective way to increase quality is to be heard and building communication and leadership skills is a great way to get there.
- Leading Change from the Quality Team by John Ruberto, Concur. John recently spoke at our QASIG meeting and has some great ideas to share.
- Dine Around Portland. Monday night heading out on the town to check out Portland’s vibrant foodie, wine, cocktail, and ice cream scene.
- Quality: 2020, Brian Gaudreau. How to plan and be ready for the future of software quality.
- And so many more!
We know we’ll come away energized as always and look forward to our time there next week. If you are attending stop by our table on Monday to say hi! Krista, Jeff, and Cindy will be there to chat about quality and of course, we’ll have our signature flip pads to give away so you can take notes in the sessions.
Check out the PNSQC Website to learn more about the program (and there’s still time to register if you haven’t yet!).
