flickrThe Questionmark Users Conference is the most important learning event of the year. With over a dozen sessions to attend and topics ranging from penetration testing to measuring and understanding your assessment results, there is so much knowledge packed within three days.

Assessment security was an important topic at the Conference in Napa. Questionmark Chairman John Kleeman took to the blog last week to lay out some security advice he heard from attendees. You can check out his blog post, Assessment Security: 5 Tips from Napa, to learn more.

Frequent blog contributor, Psychometrician and Reporting and Analytics Manager, Austin Fossey, presented a number of  sessions at the conference this year. According to Austin, “regardless of their individual roles or organizations’ goals, Questionmark users are first and foremost measurement professionals.” Impressed by our customers’ commitment to look for ways to always improve their measurements, validity, and impact for stakeholders, Austin wrote a blog post highlighting some of the example that struck him. You can read more about the stories he heard from our customers about their assessment programs in his blog post: 2015 Users Conference – A Gathering of Measurement Professionals.

If you did not have a chance to attend the Conference in Napa, there is always next year! Look out for dates and a special location announcement on the blog. For those of you who attended and would like to relive some of the special moments spent in Napa, you can check out the pictures now on our Flickr page. The photos highlight moments from the conference as well as from our special evening event at Markham Winery.

It’s hard to believe the conference we’ve spent so many months planning is drawing to a close!  We’re now in the final general session, where we’ll review what our Product Owners have learned from customers about possible new features during  focus groups on Monday and Tuesday. Then we’ll gather customers’ feedback, which will help us set the course for future developments.

Opening General Session at the 2010 Users Conference in MiamiWhile we’re busy pondering the future, we’re also recalling all the learning and networking that have taken place here in Miami. We’d like to thank everyone who attended for the great memories  and wish them safe journeys home.
