Quality is not an act, it's a habit: Best practices in system testing and QA
Limited Capacity seats available

Testing is extremely important in helping you verify the functionality and the usability of your solution.  Is this design acceptable for your users? Is the solution working as designed?  Is the solution doing something that it is not supposed to?  This is where having well defined requirements and user cases positively impacts the planning and effectiveness of testing.

Testing is just as important and can be even more complex and challenging than analysis and design.  In this session we’ll be showing you tips and tricks on how to ensure you’re not missing any important detail when it comes to your solution. We’ll be going over areas such as:

 

  • Business Needs –successfully validating that the business requirements are fulfilled, verifying functionality and testing for usability
  • User Stories – getting the right formula to create user stories based on current business processes
  • The importance of knowing your solution and understanding how this could positively affect the outcome of QA 

 

This session is perfect for those at an Intermediate Skill Level.

Government and Foundation granting is constantly being cut back and multi-year funding is becoming extinct.

CanadaHelps has evolved from “the donate button” to facilitating digital donations through phones, securities and is leading a data-focused fundraising revolution from the ground up. How do you makes sure your bases are covered, your team knows how to accept assets and you’re not missing the biggest donor opportunities? We will share current and cutting edge data and resources from across the sector so you can bring more clarity and sustainability to your funding strategy!

Equal Pay for Equal Work, Mandatory Remedial Certification and other Perks from Bill 148
Limited Capacity seats available

Take a look at the below situation and ask yourself: Would “Bee” be entitled to the same pay rate as “Ace”?  

Ace is Nonprofit “ABC”’s full-time employee. She works in one of ABC’s location in Toronto, ON, near Dundas and University. Her pay rate is higher than Bee’s, who is ABC’s part-time employee. Bee works from her home-office in Hamilton, ON, and she has in-person, bi-weekly meetings with her supervisor in Toronto, near St. Clair and Yonge, which is ABC’s second location in Toronto. Ace and Bee perform substantially the same kind of work. 

If you are a public sector organization, then this session is for you! Ontario’s Bill 148 has created real disruption for nonprofit and public sector employers, with massive changes to the minimum wage, payroll calculations, entitlements, and labour relations rules. While the initial minimum wage increase is already in effect as of January 1st, 2018, many agencies will be significantly impacted by the Equal Pay for Equal Work provision coming into force in April. With 50 days until this piece of the legislation is enforceable, find out what you need to know now from Employment and Labour Relations Lawyer, Antonio F. Urdaneta.
