CTE Company bio:
CTE’s core business is working with clients to seamlessly implement consistent and repeatable QA processes and procedures across the entire IT function. We work in partnership with our clients to manage/lead testing efforts using our ‘QA Connect’ methodology. This allows our clients to see the process in action and provides proof of its effectiveness by demonstrating tangible and measurable results. These results include increased QA output, decrease in critical and major development issues post deployment, and increased confidence in the QA function. We work closely with our clients to find the optimal balance between their QA resources: People; Process; and Tools.
Daniel “Rotey” Rotenberg
Rotey was born in a relatively small town named Waterloo Iowa, where he spent his early childhood. When Rotey was 9 years old, he moved south to the metro Atlanta area. It was shortly after the move when Roteys parents split up, and his Father moved back north to Chicago, leaving his mother to provide for the two of them, and a young Rotey with plenty of time alone. It was during this isolation that his passion for hip hop was born. Rotey bought his first “rhyme book” in high school, and hasn’t looked back since. What started out as just a way to express himself has since blossomed into a full blown career as both an artist and producer, sweeping across college campus’s in the southeast. Fueled by a relentless ambition, Roteys fast paced wordplay and emotionally packed memoirs, coupled with his charming charisma and sharp wit ensure the young MC is not only here to stay, but to thrive.
