Note from the Chairman

Hello SCQAA-OC Membership,

I hope you were able to join us this last month. Our speaker, Jesse Martinez, gave us strong insight to the testing efforts taking place in the healthcare environment. We hope we can get Jesse back next year to give us an update on all the robotics they are pulling into the hospital and how his team is going about testing.

SCQAA-OC has planned some “light out” months where we will not have a meeting. This month, April, is one of those months. We will not have a meeting but will be back in May with another great topic and speaker. So make sure you are checking the website for updates.

Just a reminder, we are still our offering our meeting for FREE. We only ask that you register online so we can get a count and have the sign in sheet ready. We don’t serve any meal so make sure you eat before or bring something along.

And if you have not been to our new meeting facility we encourage you to join us. The feedback from the attendees on the new facility has been fantastic. The room is comfortable and makes for a great meeting facility. The room is located toward the back of the IRWD facility but we place our banner outside where it can be seen from the parking lot to help guide you to our room. There is no security station or lobby which you have to pass through to get to the meeting. It is directly open to the outside.

See you at the May SCQAA-OC Meeting,

Join us for our next meeting!

We look forward to seeing you at our next upcoming meeting in 29 days!


May 23 2017 (6:00 PM - 8:30 PM)

About our Speakers:: Jesse Martinez
Profile: Software quality has been a passion since I landed my first software testing position back in January of 1990 at Xerox Corporation in El Segundo, CA. I can remember that day like it was yesterday, because it took an entire Saturday for the interview process. There must have been over 100 candidates and only 5 of us walked away with contracts to test their state-of-the-art “printers” (hardware & firmware). 1990 was a significant year since Xerox had just been awarded the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. I learned first hand about testing methodology, development process, business requirements, defect management, change and issue management, test planning and execution and the power of “exit criteria” that had been agreed upon by all stakeholders. The years I spent at Xerox were a pivotal point in my testing career since it gave me the backbone material to launch a software testing business. “I learned from the best”.

The last 15 years I have been working with healthcare payers and hospitals across the country managing the large system integration projects
