Last week, SmartBear alumna Lorinda Brandon gave an powerful and insightful keynote address at Degfragcon 2013. I wasn't only drawn to this conversation because Lorinda is a former colleague and friend, but because I've seen first-hand the passion and unique take that she has for this specific topic.
Considering the positive response it got on the conference's hashtag hours and days after her session, I thought it would be fitting to continue this conversation beyond the stage of the Omni Interlocken Resort in Broomfield, Colorado. Take a look at my summary of Lorinda's presentation below:
