The 2012 Global QAI Quest Conference is Coming Back to Chicago in 2012

Are you a technology professional in a quality assurance related role? If you are reading my blog there is a good chance you are.  I was fortunate enough to live in the same area where this conference was being held for 2 years. I manned the booth, presented a few sessions around Microsoft’s testing tools as well as held a “Women in Tech” networking luncheon, and learned a LOT about the latest trends and techniques in software quality assurance from some incredibly innovative and experienced folks.  Sadly, the conference moved to Texas and then Massachusetts for the past 2 years and I was not able to attend, but now it’s BACK!

Budgets are tight and money for training and conferences can be hard to come by.  Start planning for the QAI 2012 Global Quest conference being held in Chicago next year, right now.  Microsoft will be there talking about their newest tools around quality assurance, agile project management, test planning, defect tracking and traceability and reporting.  We’ll even have some exciting news to share around our next release!  More details on the conference:
