The Quality Assurance Special Interest Group (QASIG) seeks to engage the full spectrum of software quality professionals within a dynamic learning and networking community. Together we examine the evolving challenges of software quality assurance and explore ways to advance leading methodologies and best practices. Anyone is welcome and invited to take part in the dialog!
The QASIG was started in 2003 and is managed by Quardev, Inc.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.
The Program Management Special Interest Group is devoted to the discussion of Project, Program, or Product Management issues of all kinds. A speaker is chosen to do a webinar each even month of the year to share a novel or engaging idea or experience covering this simple charter: “How do we manage who does what by when?” (with a splash of some Hows and Whys for good measure). Discussion topics will include classic planning and execution topics as estimation, tooling, and reporting, but also how the dynamics of coordination, communication, and culture influence to the role of a PM.
PMSIG is hosted by Jon Bach, a Senior Program Manager at eBay, leading various quality-related efforts in its Marketing Technologies team of 150 people. He has more than two decades of software quality project experience as a tester, test manager, test consultant, and test director, which he now uses to help eBay make sure its marketing efforts are thoughtful and relevant. He has an energetic and practical style, and he is known to many eBay customers as “Jon the Bug Hunter.”
The PMSIG is sponsored by Quardev, Inc., a technical services firm with who provides skilled talent in IT Staffing and managed project solutions. PMSIG meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each even-numbered month eventually at the Quardev offices: 2707 NE Blakeley Street, Seattle, WA 98105 but until we can all enjoy each other’s company in person we will be hosting these remotely. This is a complimentary, inclusive community looking to provide an informative and interactive environment to discuss and promote new ideas, theories, methodologies, and technologies for the PM community.
We are looking for some dynamic speakers for the 2021 meetings. If you are interested, please let us know.
