March 15, 2008 QArea has joined Southern California Quality Assurance Association Orange County (SCQAA-OC).
SCQAA-OC is a volunteer organization which mission is to develop and maintain a community consisting of software quality professionals dedicated to strengthening members' skills, promoting knowledge about quality assurance and quality control, and increasing their role in the today's IT industry.
Membership in SCQAA-OC opens a new opportunity for QArea to be in touch with the U.S. and world quality professionals. It is particularly important because QArea considers software quality not only as a usual part of software development life cycle but also as a main aspect of QArea market and production strategy. QArea is the Test Driven Company and builds its own software development processes according to the test driven approach. Also, QArea provides a comprehensive set of QA/QC services which help other companies to make their outsourcing of software development to offshore or nearshore vendors more transparent, predictable, assured, and, as a result, more cost-effective and reliable.
Maintaining contacts with QA and IT professional association in California is very significant as they are located in the heart of modern IT industry – the Silicon Valley. It allows QArea specialists to be timely informed about the latest IT trends, best IT and QA practice, and take part in discussions with the industry thought leaders.
"We expect that QArea membership at the SCQAA-OC will assist us to establish contacts with the members of SCQAA-OC, and serve as the beginning of long term, mutually beneficial cooperation between us," comments Max Garkavtsev, Founder of QArea.
