Pearson Lanka’s software quality engineering team would hold a forum titled Quality Quest at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH), on September 12. Organised for the second time, this year's theme is 'Inspiring Quality through Innovation'.

“The event extended to university students and academia, will focus on trends in technology such as Artificial Intelligence, Predictive Analysis, Machine Learning and Micro-services in the context of quality engineering. Participants will also learn about the paradigm shift in software quality engineering and the opportunities it presents for innovation,” the organising team stated in a press release.

The keynote speech would be delivered by Rohan Jayaweera, the Country General Manager of Palo Alto Networks for Sri Lanka and the Maldives. He is also the former country consultant and brand evangelist for Google Sri Lanka.

Pearson's Global Quality Engineering Vice President Teresa Jacobs and Sri Jayewardenepura University Senior Lecturer Dr. Dushar Dayarathna would also take part in the event.

The event would also include a panel discussion with MAS Linea NXT Director/CEO Malik Ahamadeen, Rohan Jayaweera, Teresa Jacobs and Pearson Lanka Enterprise Architecture Head Subuki Shihabdeen.

“As a prelude to the event, a series of in-house activities such as poster competitions, quizzes and a competition calling for white papers from undergraduates, were concluded. In parallel, several workshops for university lecturers and undergraduates were conducted at Pearson Lanka, giving them industry exposure, whilst sharing Pearson’s own quality engineering practices,” the organising team stated.

“Pearson Lanka is excited to host this event. As a committed contributor to the IT industry, Pearson believes that this will be a leap towards shaping the future outlook of quality engineering in Sri Lanka,” the press release stated.
