The QA or the Highway conference is organized by COSQAM (Central Ohio Software Quality Assurance & Management), which is backed by QA leadership from major corporations in Columbus Ohio. We are dedicated to elevating the QA and Testing industry – it is QA or the Highway.

Additionally, COSQAM is committed to “giving back” to our local community. One way we do this is through charitable donations. Currently, we are donating to donorschoose.org (making it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need):

  • $1,115.61 to Mrs. Barr’s 3rd grade class at Liberty Elementary School to purchase Chromebooks so the children can learn to type, access websites such as Flocabulary to enhance vocabulary, and practice math skills on sites such as ALECKS and Cool Math.
  • $669.74 to Mrs. Ranalli’s 4th grade class at Berwick Alternative Elementary School so she can buy Chromebooks to complete research-based science projects, like Invention Convention.
