Professor Community Meet-Up
Thursday, March 14, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (CDT)
Join ThoughtWorks for an evening of food, drinks and fellowship with professors from various Chicagoland universities.
Quality software may be different for the astronauts on a NASA shuttle and the users of the mobile application "Words With Friends". However, in both cases, the success of the development team, and in turn, the client company, relies on the end user finding value in the final product. Special guest speaker, Abbey Bangser, will kick off the event with a discussion on Quality Assurance, the methodologies used by QA Analysts, and the role they play in a delivery team. Bangser is a graduate of Northwestern and now a QA and Developer at ThoughtWorks.
