Announcing a New User Group: TUGs (Testing User Group)

  • Brad Montgomery

The FedEx Institute of Technology in partnership with the Software Testing Excellence Program and the Department of Business Information Technology at the University of Memphis are pleased to announce the Testing User Group meeting monthly to discuss the challenges of creating a successful testing environment to ensure that your software, applications, and other testable products are put through the latest in standards of excellence.

Every month we will meet at 4 pm (speaker presentation starts at 4:30 pm) at Expedient located at 3180 Players Lane in Germantown. This month, our meeting is on OCTOBER 20th and features the Director of the STEP program outlining some of the research and testing efforts going on right now at the University of Memphis. This is a great opportunity to come and learn what testing is, why it is critical to good design, and ask lots of questions to people who have lots of answers. Also, as a bonus, free beer and food for everyone. Come join the best testing community in the world. Register for October at this link.

The Systems Testing Excellence Program (STEP) is a major interdisciplinary research initiative under the umbrella of the FedEx Institute of Technology with academic program support from UofM Departments of Business Information & Technology and Computer Science, who are tasked with building up research and curricular competencies that will help position the university and the city of Memphis as a national and internationally recognized thought-leader in the science of systems testing. To achieve this, STEP in collaboration with FedEx is creating a hub for testers and QA specialists by providing a forum for learning and knowledge sharing about the latest ideas in software testing.
