Consumers demand software that is available, reliable, and secure. As software development continues to evolve, quality assurance and testing must keep pace or become obsolete. Individuals and organizations seeking the highest standards in software quality must continually re-evaluate and refine their testing processes.
Through the QASIG, we engage members of the high-tech community in discussions around the ever-evolving challenges of software quality assurance. We value the ideas and collaboration of every member, creating a dynamic format for the advancement of the latest testing trends and topics.
In addition to hosting events for the software quality community, we also give back to our surrounding community by supporting local non-profit organizations and causes. Our main alliance is with the University District Food Bank, an excellent organization that does vital work in our neighborhood. We are pleased to support them by collecting donations of food or cash at QASIG events.
If you want to add your voice to the relentless pursuit of software quality by learning and networking with top minds in the industry, join us!
