“The goal of the Greater Boston Software Testing Interest Group is to have open discussions that drive awareness and excellence in software testing, as well as provide a means for local testing professionals to network with each other,” said Lorinda Brandon, Director, Strategies at SmartBear. “As we demand more of software testing, one of the most important functions on software development teams, and as the development world becomes more complicated with mobile and regulated industries, discussions around relevant software testing topics are becoming increasingly critical.”
The group is open to anyone who is interested in software testing and would like to learn more about the mind of a tester. Monthly meetings will have a featured topic and guest speakers. A grant from AST is covering expenses for the group.
