Development heavyweights supporting 'Interactive Testing' track during October SQS event

The UK's annual QA testing conference for the software sector is targetting games developers with a new one-day interactive media conference that has scored support from the likes of EA, Sega, Kuju and Babel.

Software & Systems Quality Conferences is hoping to reach out to studios and garner more support for its games event on October 3rd.

The event promises a one-day exploration of QA and testing's position in the industry, discussing individual studios and publishers' testing methods and the latest technology.

"QA is no longer - and should not be - a part of games development that is overlooked," EA's QA director Chris Ambler explained to Develop.

"We want the industry to understand that it's a key part of the process, and we also want to be able to develop better QA practices and techniques."

The interactive media track is a larger part of the bigger SQS conference, which runs from October 2nd to 3rd at London's Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre. Tutorials on the QA and testing field also run before and after the event and an expo runs alongside the conference.
