At a time when software quality is more important than ever, there are so many reasons to attend Quality Jam. Here are our top five:
1. Discover What’s Next
With the proliferation of software development across businesses, QA is becoming increasingly critical to business success. From internal processes like DevOps, test automation and continuous delivery to software development trends like AI and microservices, Quality Jam will hit on the biggest trends and topics affecting software testing today.
You’ll also learn what’s on the horizon for software testing technologies from the creators of qTest. During the qTest platform keynote, our team will share the latest innovations that are a part of the qTest platform, including new tools for test automation management and BDD, as well as what’s on our roadmap for the rest of 2018.
2. Meet People
At Quality Jam, it’s our goal to bring together like-minded individuals and create a quality-focused community. Meet testers, test managers, DevOps practitioners, VPs of Quality and CIOs who are prioritizing quality as a top-of-mind initiative. To help you make the most of this community, we’ve built lots of opportunities for networking and catching up with old friends into the schedule, including happy hour Monday night, a brewery party on Tuesday, and plenty of opportunities to grab lunch or coffee with new connections or old friends.
3. Be Inspired
Have you seen our speaker lineup? In addition to keynotes from technology leaders such as Brian Dawson, Jeff Arnold and Chuck and Josh from the Stuff You Should Know podcast, we’ve also arranged for several of QASymphony’s customers to share their stories of transformation through quality. This year, you’ll hear from QA leaders at USA Today, The Home Depot, Transamerica, Capgemini, USAA and more.
You can feel the excitement in our 2018 preview video, which includes a few clips from last year’s conference:
4. Boost Your Career
When you are active in your industry, you can develop a reputation as an expert to your peers and your clients. Those who are engaged over the long term are often asked to speak at events or in webinars or contribute to industry publications and websites.
Quality Jam is the perfect opportunity for you to meet some of the QA industry’s top thought leaders, as well as to start building your reputation! I’ll be on site with the QASymphony video production crew to interview attendees about their experiences at Quality Jam, as well as to gather perspectives on emerging development and testing trends and the future of software testing. If you’d like to schedule an interview and be featured in a Quality Jam video, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. Experience Atlanta
It’s where QASymphony is headquartered, so we might be a little bit biased, but Atlanta has so much to offer. If you’ve got a day or two to spare, Atlanta is absolutely worth exploring — from its rich history to its quirky neighborhoods to its exciting food scene.
On Tuesday night, we’re taking Quality Jam attendees to one of our favorite places, New Realm Brewing, which is the latest addition to the city’s burgeoning craft beer scene. The party will be upstairs in the rooftop beer garden, which overlooks the Atlanta BeltLine and offers great skyline views. Be sure to try the brewery’s signature IPA, the “wonderfully aromatic” Radegast.
The BeltLine is Atlanta’s major re-urbanization project, similar to New York City’s High Line, which connects Atlanta’s quintessential in-town neighborhoods with a network of walkways and green spaces. It’s a great way to explore the city on foot, with plenty of opportunities to stop for a drink or a bite at some of Atlanta’s most popular restaurants.
