The roadshow will leverage on the 2nd Sarawak Software Quality Symposium (SSQS 2014) organised by the MSTH Sarawak Chapter, a one-day event being held at the Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak.
MSTB president Mastura Abu Samah (pic) said this would be the first time MSTB is discussing SQA and software testing in Kuching, although the city has been a regular destination for previous MSTB roadshows.
“Due to the dynamic nature of the industry and MSTH programmes, there is a need for constant communications and dialogue with industry players and other stakeholders to enhance the awareness and maintain their interests,” she said.
The symposium will feature speakers from MSTB as well as from members of MSTH Sarawak Chapter and Standards Malaysia. Presenters will be sharing industry experiences and thoughts on SQA, software testing and relevant international standards.
MSTB will also speak on software testing market and opportunities available for Malaysian companies.
SSQS 2014 organising chair Associate Prof Dr Patrick Then said the symposium would be a great avenue for professionals in both the private and government sectors to gain a better understanding of various aspects of SQA and software testing practices.
“At the same time, it is also a good platform to learn and identify opportunities in the software testing market via the presentations and networking sessions with speakers and other delegates,” said Then, who is also the Associate Dean (Computing) and Head of Advanced Informatics Consultation and Research Group (AICRG) at Swinburne University Sarawak.
