April 10, 2008. BugHuntress QA Lab actively develops cooperation with professional organizations and international communities in the field of Quality Assurance and modern ICT technologies.
1. BugHuntress QA Lab has joined Southern California Quality Assurance Association Orange County (as a division of QArea Group).
SCQAA-OC is a volunteer organization which mission is to develop and maintain a community consisting of software quality professionals dedicated to strengthening members' skills, promoting knowledge about quality assurance and quality control, and increasing their role in the today's IT industry.
Membership in SCQAA-OC opens a new opportunity to be in touch with the U.S. and world quality professionals. It is particularly important for BugHuntress QA Lab because it considers software testing not only as a routine part of software development life cycle. BugHuntress QA Lab provides a set of QA/QC services which help technology and software companies to make software development outsourcing more transparent, predictable, assured, and, as a result, more cost-effective and reliable. In other words, software testing is not only about software quality but also about right managerial decisions and outsourcing risks mitigation.
Maintaining contacts with QA and IT professional associations in California is very significant as they are located in the heart of modern IT industry – the Silicon Valley. It allows BugHuntress specialists to be timely informed about the latest IT trends, best IT and QA practice, and take part in discussions with the industry thought leaders.
Southern California Quality Assurance Association Orange County (www.scqaa.com) is a community of software quality professionals. SCQAA-OC sponsors eleven programs a year, allowing members meet almost monthly. In addition to regular program meetings, members have a possibility to attend special events, seminars and work-shops to exchange the ideas among quality, project management and information technology professionals. Examinations and professional certification is another step towards expertise in the field of quality assurance and software testing.
