Quality Jam 2016 Recap

Quality Jam

This past month, we held Quality Jam, our first-ever QASymphony User Conference for the software testing industry, welcoming over 175 attendees from coast-to-coast.  The conference certainly packed a punch—from Scott Berkun teaching us about “the myths of innovation” to thought provoking panels to networking and a fun happy hour.

The mission of Quality Jam is inspire and empower the software testing community. To bring together the thought leaders and practitioners for a discussion on where software testing is going in the future.

The day was packed full of powerful speakers, amazing people, some hustle and a lot of handshakes. You can view a gallery of some of our favorite pictures from the day on Facebook.

Kicking off the keynotes

The morning session kicked off with Dave Keil, CEO of QASymphony, who welcomed attendees to our first-ever Quality Jam conference and detailed the agenda for the day— action-packed with best selling authors, industry influencers and some of our top customers and partners.

Scott Berkun, Best-Selling Author of The Myth of Innovation and self-proclaimed “storyteller” captivated the audience as he took us on a journey through history.  He pointed out that the Wright Brothers were truly “Testers” – experimenting and studying airplane prototypes to find the bugs. And he shared this great quote:

“Whoever uses the most jargon has the least confidence in their ideas”

Below is a list of all the keynotes and sessions for you to watch. Please share with your colleagues who couldn’t attend live.
