A core team of very talented and committed volunteers are at work behind the scenes handling all of the myriad tasks and responsibilities required to make this event possible. Unlike other Quality Forum events which are generally targeted at professionals from the Quality & Testing function, this Fest is for everyone irrespective of their functional affiliation. The Fest provides an excellent opportunity to know the various Quality & Testing teams that are present at IEC, the wide range of tools & techniques being used by the different teams, and generally gain a lot of insight into the Quality & Testing function.
Some of the main activities that are part of this event include, Road shows by the different Quality Teams, Demonstration of various Tools being used by the different teams, Tech talk and Panel discussion on a very relevant and interesting subject pertaining to Quality by Senior Professionals from different functions. Oh! and if you are wondering if there's anything else to make the "Fest" festive, wonder not ... there are fun activities interspersed with the other events and some serious prizes to be won too.
You'll be amazed at the number of Quality teams we have at the IEC, the products & technologies they work upon, the gamut of tools used and generally gaining newer perspectives around & greater insights into the Testing function. So, if you are at the IEC, this is one not-to-be-missed event.
While on the subject of Quality, here's a quote attributed to Steve Jobs to sign off this post - “Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected.”
