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

To be honest, it’s the name of the conference.. When the call for 2016 sessions were announced, I saw the conference name from one of my LinkedIn contacts and I thought– What a cool name, maybe I should submit a proposal☺

KarenJohnson1. What attracted you to speaking at QA or the Highway this year?

I enjoy speaking at regional conferences; it is wonderful to meet people who live in the same region. The opportunities for me to work with or for people I meet at regional conferences is higher than conferences further from home. Also frequently I am in a position where I am hiring people so it is helpful to meet people who are at least somewhat close to Chicago or perhaps willing to move to Chicago should I be in “hiring mode.”

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

To be honest, I was wracking my brain for a topic for this year, and ended up proposing a session I’m co-presenting with Rob Bowyer that we came up with for another conference later this year. Submitting it to QAOTH forces us to get working on it sooner, and makes it more real.

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

We don’t have many QA focused conferences here in Columbus.  So as a QA professional, it’s a great opportunity for me to learn more about technologies, tools, techniques etc. that other companies are using. It’s good to know other organizations’ success and failure stories so as to not have to reinvent the wheel and learn from other professional’s experiences.
