It’s hard to believe that it is almost here — “it” being the Institute for Software Excellence (ISE), the conference within a conference for which I am the chair and we’ve been planning it since last August. The ISE is a new concept within the American Society for Quality (ASQ – 50,000+ members worldwide) annual World Conference on Quality and Improvement (WCQI) – a 2000 attendee grand event focused on quality in every industry. For those of us who believe in the importance of software quality, having our own separate track wihtin the main conference is an achievement and a recognition of the importance of software in the whole arena of quality.
Take a look at the program lineup (click program on the left hand menu) and plan to register as an ISE attendee (you can then attend ANY WCQI session and event at no additional charge) – in Minneapolis May 18-20, 2009. http://www.asq.org/conferences/institute-for-software-excellence/index. We have an outstanding lineup of expert presenters on timely topics waiting to transfer knowledge to you. (I’m presenting the lively “Are you smarter than a CSQE- Certified Software Quality Engineer” at the conference on Wednesday May 20, 2009).
