1. Go-To Conference for ANYONE and EVERYONE Seeking to Understand Modern Software Testing
It’s called QASymphony’s User Conference, but It’s a lot more than that and is useful for all. Covering a wide range of topics from rapid testing, automation, and DevOps, to a peek into testing at Disney and much more.
Conveniently located in Atlanta on April 18-19th – a direct flight from almost anywhere.
2. Hear From Top Software Testing Thought Leaders and Practitioners
There are some truly brilliant minds in the world of software testing, and Quality Jam 2017 will bring together some of the best and brightest to present at the conference. The lineup is a mix of both thought leaders and practitioners, so you’ll walk away with inspiration and action items you can implement at your business.
Here are just a few of the many speakers and sessions we’re really excited about:
In the spirit of promoting testing and development alignment, we encourage you to bring the whole team to Quality Jam. There are tracks for both testers and developers, so both teams will benefit from attending. There’s even a discount for teams of 3 people or more that’ll save you big bucks on each ticket!

4. Network With Over 350+ Software Testing Professionals
Quality Jam is notorious for bringing together hundreds testing professionals from around the country who are looking to challenge the status quo and become better at what they do. You’ll have the chance to eat, drink, and hang out with hundreds of your peers who also want to take their testing game to the next level. (including a tour of Sweetwater Brewery & bbq from FoxBros)
Here’s what some attendees from last year’s event had to say:
5. Meet the Quality Jam Sponsors
QASymphony is excited to host Quality Jam, and we’re even more excited to partner with like-minded companies who are sponsoring because they believe in software testing just as much as we do. The sponsors of Quality jam have built technology and provide a service that helps software testers do their jobs even better.
Here are the sponsors you should make plans to meet — and more are being added each week!
6. See Why 90% of Attendees Would Recommend Quality Jam to a Friend
Last year’s Quality jam attendees had a great time learning and networking, and the majority plan to attend again this year (93%). The combination of thought leadership presentations, educational sessions, fun networking opportunities, great food, and an amazing venue (the Westin Buckhead) really make for an event you won’t want to miss.
93% of last years attendees said they plan to come back again in 2017
7. Learn How Other Companies See Success with Software Testing
If you’re wondering how companies are actually doing Software Testing, make sure you check out the case study sessions. During these sessions, practitioners at all different types of companies will share their success stories and will help you better understand how to apply these testing principles at your organization.
8. Hear from Two Famous Podcaster’s
As podcasters for the last decade, Charles W. “Chuck” Bryant and Josh Clark have had the opportunity to learn some really fascinating things. Like that it takes a light particle 100,000 years to make it from the core of the sun to the surface, but only 8 minutes to make it from there to the Earth. Or that lightning literally rips apart the air it travels through as it makes its way from the sky to the ground.
In researching and producing more than 900 episodes of the pioneering podcast Stuff You Should Know, they’ve dipped their toes into just about every subject matter you can imagine, from science and politics, to pop culture and history. And in the process, they’ve racked up nearly a half a billion episode downloads and sold out live shows all across North America and the UK. Not bad for a couple of public school guys who’d thought their learning days ended with college.
Their witty and casual approach has certainly proven contagious. The “SYSK Army” has grown into one of the most dedicated, curious, and knowledge hungry collections of people on the planet. Now it’s your turn to hang out with Josh and Chuck as they explore the interesting and oftentimes messy world of software testing with a live talk about some of the more notable examples of untested things that went down in flames (sometimes literally).
