Everyone who has ever worked on an application development project knows that you don’t just simply put code and content out in production to your customers, employees, or stakeholders without first testing it. Quality Assurance (QA) is such a core part of any technology or business delivery that it’s one of the essential components of any development methodology.

Recap: 50th Anniversary Celebration
On December 18th, PMI NYC celebrated PMI's 50 th Anniversary at Patrick’s Restaurant in Midtown Manhattan. The Programs and Operations teams greeted the crowd with festive cheer. This awesome celebration included the Anniversary Bingo game, a great opportunity to meet someone new and learn something about that person. Many in attendance won raffle gifts to celebrate the 50 th Anniversary. A great time was shared by all with holiday cheer and great food. Truly an amazing way to end the year!
