    Dear Software Professional,

    If you are really looking for practical advice to help you get that project back on track, don't miss this educational opportunity.

    If you are tired of conferences that waste your time on philosophical
    issues and nonsense theories, we promise this will NOT happen at these conferences.

    Before you attend this conference, read what experts and practitioners
    said about it at www.psqtconference.com/psqt2002north.

    "Practical" has been the theme for PSQT/PSTT Conferences
    from the beginning. Absolutely, no hype and no theory.
    You do not have time or budget to waste anymore. We make
    sure if it is not practical, then it is not worth your time.

    Allow me to correct myself - I am NOT missing this one. I found out at the last minute that I could go after all as a volunteer since I live right here.

    I've just spent a wonderful day listening to Dr. Robin Goldsmith JD, on Testing Business Requirements. If you ever get a chance to take a class from him, you'll really enjoy it. And I've now met Elfriede in person. (she doesn't look at all like her notes <grin>)

    Unemployment right now is a plus for me. I can be at the conference every day this week.

    I've met so many really nice people and run into a whole lot of people I've worked with in the past as well.

    I highly recommend this conference!
    Here's the site with the list of classes and conferences for this one. http://www.softdim.com/psqt2002north/

    Oh, I can't hear your accent in your posts either.

    All, this conference is the absolute best place to be for all QA people whether you are just starting out or have been doing this for a while. It's only been going for two days and I'm having an absolutly wonderful time listening to and talking with everyone there. It really does make a difference when you have peer support and discussions of your work, ideas and methodologies.

    Whether you hear your own thoughts echoed back to you, or get new ideas on how to do things, this conference is an excellent method of validating your QA efforts.

    Hi Jean,
    It was nice meeting you. Thanks for all your help there!!! You are just as energetic as I imagined you to be.
    I might see you at a TCQAA meeting in MN soon. I will be talking about my new book "Effective Software Testing."
    I'll keep you and others here posted as to the date, etc.

    Thanks! And it was great meeting you as well. And since I didn't get a chance to attend any of your classes, I'll be looking forward to hearing you at TCQAA, and will watch for it.

    I'm still pinching myself at my good luck at being able to attend last week.
