Quality Week 2001

 San Francisco, California, USA   |   29 May - 1 June 2001 


The new century has really begun now. There's no escaping the new reality of an internet age.

Growth in the Internet had been a main driving factor in much of what's new and what's valuable in internet quality testing and quality assurance, and in turn for client/server testing and QA. As WebSite complexities grow, so does the need for powerful back-end support. Each area needs the technology of the other.

QW2001's theme The Internet Wave! reflects and amplifies this new reality. The Conference Keynoters have real-world experience that can be used to balance quality and value, our QuickStart speakers' expertise will save you time and effort, and over 60 speakers focus on Technology, Applications, Internet and Management topics.

QW2001 aims to face issues directly. It's an event surely NOT to be missed!
