This year’s theme for PNSQC is 2020 Vision: Quality Looking Forward. The theme was chosen to inspire attendees and speakers to think of ways to learn from the past, and envision ways to achieve quality software in the future.
In January, we kicked off the 2020 Call for Proposals with a symbolic torch lighting ceremony. Much like a lightning talk event, we had eight speakers with short presentations on their visions for improving the process of developing software. We got lots of positive feedback from attendees, who said they particularly liked the networking aspect of the kickoff and encouraged having additional events throughout the year.
Videos of the presentations are now available. They may spark an idea for your own proposal to share a vision of quality for the 2020 Conference in October.

Rachael Lovallo presents three action items for 2020 to increase quality and efficiency in the workplace.
Two fundamental forces in software development are Velocity and Quality. Matt shares his experience with the interplay of those forces.
Why is it important to have security built into the development life cycle and how does it help you? Bhushan suggests, “Let’s start with ‘How things get hacked…'”
Sion proposes a mechanism for discovering each team member’s perspective that has some unexpected results.
BITS are biologically inspired. You’ll have to watch Tariq’s clip to find out more.
Daniel finds that “agile teams don’t talk a lot about security…yet there are people in the company talking about security, who?” Operations — that’s where it’s at.
Keeping to the 2020 Vision theme, Ying Ki says that many Enterprise IT projects fall short due to a “vision” problem.
Only the strong survive, right? Maybe. Phil shares a story about that.
