Atlanta SPIN Mission Statement
Provide a forum for the open exchange of ideas and experiences related to software and systems process improvements. In addition, provide free and low cost training opportunities to technology professionals allowing our local professionals to be competitive in a global marketplace.
Atlanta SPIN was chartered in 1994 and since then has been an influencial voice for software process improvement in the Atlanta metro area. Atlanta SPIN meets every third Wednesday of the month, except November and December, when the meetings are held on the second Wednesday. Meetings typically attract individuals with a background in software development with specialization in business analysis, quality assurance, software development or management of IT personel. The meetings provide a forum for like-minded people interested in learning from others and sharing their own experiences about process improvement, quality assurance, software development methodologies and other related topics.
There is time allowed before and after the meeting for networking among the participants. During the meeting we have a presentation featuring experts in their field, job opening announcements by partcipants at the meeting, raffle door prize drawings and announcements of upcoming meetings, webinars, workshops and other events that are related to the careers of the individuals attending the meetings. Atlanta SPIN, through its work with Atlanta SPIN Sponsors, ensures that food and drinks are also available at no cost to the attendees and that there are no fees to attend.
Atlanta SPIN is designated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation by the IRS. Your contributions may be tax deductible and qualify for corporate matching contributions from your company.
