Plan on joining us for this Kick-off event, meet the vendors, meet your fellow attendees and speakers, mingle and mix it up. We provide the complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beverages, we invite the local software community to join us. Then you provide us your tales from the dark side! Get into the Halloween spirit with PNSQC.
Nothing can prepare you for stories you will hear this dark and eerie night as your colleagues drag you to the brink of madness with tales of terrifying testing, scary software, inscrutable specifications, and devilish defects!
Have your own terrifying tale to tell? The stage is yours for 5 minutes IF your dare! Survivors will be cursed with a special prize awarded for the truly most frightening, nightmarish, and deeply disturbing descriptions of software gone horribly, horribly wrong.
This open mic event is hosted by the greatest howler of all – Frank D’Andrea – and brought to you by PNSQC and TAO.
Tell your tale or die trying!

The three may be completely different, or have strong themes, but the point is that a culture exists with or without you. You don’t force a culture, you either invite or incite it to take on certain characteristics that are valued. For example, aspects such as learning, communication, and collaboration are three activities that may be rewarded on your team, but are they valued enough for the team to do it on their own?
Culture is what an anthropologist sees if they observed you in action. Is it forced by another or is it organic? In this talk, Jon will share his thoughts and experiences about the cultures he has seen over the years and what you might take away to incite (and invite) in your culture when you get back to your desk.
