Microsoft Quality Assurance Breakfast

imageQuality Assurance
An effective software quality approach can dramatically improve effectiveness, automation and traceability throughout the development lifecycle. It may surprise you to learn that Microsoft employs as many software testers as developers. Less surprising is the emphasis the company places on the testing discipline—and its role in managing quality across a diverse product portfolio.

For insights into how Microsoft drives software development and tool efficiencies that can benefit your organization, we are extending this special invitation to join Microsoft’s own Alan Page for an executive breakfast on software quality assurance. This is a unique opportunity to share your challenges and learn more about real world solutions. Please register before limited spaces are filled. (Invite Code: 2B1C6C)
