Presenter: Neal Caidin
There is no other activity that more greatly benefits the Sakai project, for which almost everyone is qualified to participate. Come get the big picture view of how we perform Sakai Quality Assurance (QA) and find out some important details to help you get started. Learn what the community needs are for QA testing, aspects of QA testing we believe we could do better, and areas where we need your help and support. An overview of Sakai QA will be provided by the Community Coordinator, and there will be plenty of time for questions and answers.
Neal works for the Apereo Foundation as the Sakai Community Coordinator, whose primary responsibility is to ensure the continued high quality and timeliness of Sakai releases. Neal is also a central contact point to facilitate communication and collaboration within the Sakai community.
Neal’s background includes over 12 years in higher education, including the management of learning systems like Sakai and Blackboard, integration projects, and various technology and instructional technology planning groups. Neal started in technology in the 1990's as a software developer and transitioned into roles as a project manager, which has been his main focus for some time (i.e. development skills are rusty). He is formally certified as a Project Management Professional through PMI.org. Neal co-founded, though is no longer a participant in, the non-profit open source group http://www.oscelot.org/ . Neal has other non-technology community interests and has experience in consensus decision making processes and other types of creative collaboration.
