In less than a month I will be participating at the QAI QUEST conference in San Antonio. This will be the fourth time I will be speaking and I am just as excited about going this year as I was the first time.

It is a great opportunity to see others within the discipline getting together to share ideas, discuss multiple topics and have healthy debates on topics. It is a very structured event with multiple thought leaders there to help improve how we as a community can grow.

This year will be even more exciting for me as I will be one of the leads that will be participating in the Manager’s workshop helping other QA leaders in a collaborative environment to find solutions for problems they are encountering within their groups. This is an opportunity that I am not taking lightly. I am glad to share my hurdles and my thought process of getting past them.

Some of the topics I would be participating in are:

Communication

Estimation

Best practices

CoE

To name a few.

As well as the Manager’s workshop I am also doing a workshop within the conference on Writing TDD Test Cases to Support Manual and Automation Execution . 

I will be showing some techniques I have learned over the past couple of decades on documenting test cases from Unit test to full functional all the while making things clear for automation scripts to be created along the way.

The intent will be to show different ways of looking at things to see where improvements can be made with tweaks.  Since it is a workshop there will be some hands on activities to get more senses involved in the learning process. This way here things will be better retained.

If you are already signed up for the conference I look forward to seeing you there. If not you should take a look and see if you can go. It is always a great learning experience.
