Our speakers are +JoEllen Carter

JoEllen Carter is an agile QA tester for VersionOne. JoEllen has more than seven years of experience defining the role of tester on agile teams. From her first exposure to agile methodologies, she’s been an inspired advocate of the value an experienced, collaborative tester brings to an agile team. She’s worked primarily on teams new to agile, transitioning from a traditional QA organization to highly effective agile teams. Her experience in software development and testing began in the highly regulated and QA-intensive nuclear power industry and now includes direct marketing donor management software, staffing software, e-commerce systems, and project management software. Her formal education includes a Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering and a Master of Science in Technical Communication.
