Designed for programmers, this session will help application developers deliver more reliable work product. While the need for testing and QA is widely accepted and embraced, it can be difficult to achieve in smaller IT departments where one professional wears many hats. Whether you are your own QA or you want to bullet proof your unit testing before handing off to QA, this will help you improve your own work product.

Learning Objectives: Understand the different stages of testing and what can be achieved in each. Identify what types of risk analysis to perform by project. Use varied testing processes to move applictions through the development process efficently.

Audience: Programmers in small IT departments who are largely responsible for testing their applications. QA professionals who want to understand the testing code has received before being handed off. Programmers in larger shops that want a better understanding of QA/Testing and to improve the work product they deliver.

Yvonne Enselman, CTAL-TA

The elegance of single level storage architecture and object encapsulation was explained to Yvonne Enselman in 1997 at Moraine Valley Community College, making her a life long devotee of the IBM Midrange. Since then, she has programmed in RPG, CL, SQL and worked with EDI/B2B communications for various companies as a consultant. In 2005, she switched to a QA/Software Testing focus after realizing breaking software was more enjoyable than writing it. She is currently an Application Consultant with Kronos in the Advanced Testing Services team. She has been an active member of OMNI for 15 years and frequently a member of the Board of Directors during that time; holding positions including President, Secretary, and Treasurer. This year she is proud to hold the Omni title of Conference Chair and is proud to be delivering her sixth education event to this community. In 2013 she was elected to the COMMON Board of Directors and still can't believe her good fortune to be serving in this capacity. IBM Systems Magazine, IT Jungle, and Angus the IT Chap have published her work and many follow her Twitter ramblings. Recently she launched the iThusiasm brand for her blogging and encouragement endeavors. Starting in Spring 2015, she will be teaching Fundamentals of Software Testing at MVCC. Presenting at user groups is always a highlight of her year and she looks forward to any feedback this generates. Please follow her on Twitter @enselman , Facebook, and LinkedIn, and join the iThusiasm groups on same.

Dinner Meeting Directions

The event will be held at Giordano's Restaurant & Pizza at 17 W. 280 W. 22nd Street in Oakbrook Terrace, IL

Giordano's in Oakbrook Terrace is located on the North side of 22nd Street (Cermak Road) west of IL-83 and east of Midwest Road. It's across the street from the Oakbrook Terrace Costco and just east of the Oakbrook Terrace Holiday Inn.

It is most definitely the same company, but not the same Giordano's Pizza Restaurant as the other one some miles east near Mannheim Road in Westchester.
