I met Joseph Ours at the KWSQA conference last year and found out about QA or the Highway. After discussing with Joseph some topics I’d been thinking about presenting he gave me some feedback on them. That conversation led to a submission that was accepted!

A colleague and myself presented a Risk Driven Analysis at a Software QA Meetup. It is a process that we use at Nationwide and wanted to share our experiences creating and implementing the strategy. We were then asked to present the topic at QA or the Highway. The event is a great way to transfer knowledge as well as network with other QA professionals. We found that this would be a perfect opportunity to not only learn, but also provide our strategies.

1. What attracted you to speaking at QA or the Highway?

I have worked as both a developer and a tester, and this has helped me gain a different perspective on what testing is about and how to improve quality in software.  I wanted to be able to share some of these experiences with other people, so that they can both learn from my mistakes and bring some new ideas to their own software testing practices.

I’m one of the conference organizers and I like to promote the idea of Software QA professionals sharing their experiences and wisdom with the rest of the community. Up until last year I had never given a presentation at a professional conference but my talk was really well received and so I prepared a sequel of sorts for this year.

1. What attracted you to speaking at QA or the Highway?

I always wanted to contribute to local conference groups within Ohio as there are large amount of curious and like minded testers in this region. That being said, I was already contributing to local conference groups like NOSQAA (www.nosqaa.org) in Cleveland and found out that QaortheHighway is a bigger conference group which started last year and so wanted to be part of that too. Since the conference existence last year a large number of people have attended the conference and I am one of them.
