Seattle Area Software Quality Assurance Group (SASQAG) provides educational opportunities in a non-commercial atmosphere within an organization of software quality professionals. SASQAG is looking for speakers for their monthly (3rd Thursday) evening session. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you or someone you know would be interested in sharing of knowledge and experience including software standards and processes or building awareness of software quality assurance.
Examples of past talks might give you an idea of typical topics. For example see http://sasqag.org/pastmeetings.htm
We typically try to alternate between a Testing talk (e.g. technique, tool) and a software quality (e.g. process) talk. Along the way of course, process is interwoven with program management, development, etc.
The room is somewhat square, about 8 seats per row and 4 rows deep. The meeting room is setup for projection of laptop screen. Most speakers project from their laptop or there is an in room computer. Other methods like slides or overhead foil project can be arranged.
We typically have between 20 and 50 attendees depending on interest.
Presentations are 45-60 minutes ending with Q&A
and then speaker talking with individuals afterwards for 15 minutes
during our social period.
We typically broadcast and record the video using livestream.com (see pastmeetings for examples) If you are uncomfortable with this, please let us know ahead of time. A small subset of people including officers of SASQAG typically goes to dinner at Outback restaurant on SE 38th St. afterwards.
Most speakers arrive before the start of the meeting to setup and test their laptop with the projector. If a speaker wants to check ahead of time, it could be arranged, or you could just attend an earlier meeting to get a sense of the room
There is no set agenda or topic SASQAG requires
speakers to cover.
It is up to the speaker.
Anything related to software Quality Assurance or software Testing.
We occasionally have panels. Please let email@example.com know if you and interested and should keep you in mind for that.
