If you value quality in software, TSQA is where you can meet others who strive to learn and educate on tools and techniques useful in daily work strategies. Through monthly meetings, workshops, and a biannual conference, you can learn, inform, and network.
We host speakers and meet at local companies around the Triangle and invite you to also speak on topics related to tools, processes, and anything else quality related. Though we are based in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina, members from anywhere can come to our meetups and conference!
TSQA (https://tsqa.org) is the Triangle Software Quality Association. This organization has existed in the Research Triangle Area since 1993 and is dedicated to development of quality software where most topics are associated with Software Testing.
You’ve read about the benefits of Behavior Driven Development. (BDD). You’ve seen the videos. You’ve heard the podcasts. Now experience BDD with a long-time practitioner, trainer, and author. Ken reviews the steps in creating scenarios and you collaborate with fellow attendees in implementing them. The stories with which you will be working involve features for common products. If there are multiple attendees who work together, you can use one of your own stories for the breakouts. You’ll encounter discovery and formulation of scenarios that deal with flow and ones that revolve around business rules. The experience will solidify how BDD creates a shared understanding of the requirements.
