The inaugural Software Testing Special Interest Group Meeting pulled a crowd of 50 attendees.
The speaker Dr Mark Pedersen discussed various strategies for obtaining support from the business for software testing initiatives. After his presentation there was a lively group discussion where the attendees shared their experiences in this area.
The discussion ended with a call for a volunteer speaker for the next meeting from the software testing community.
Food was served and the group broke for networking and pizza.
This event was sponsored by K. J. Ross & Associates and they have agreed to sponsor future meetings at the same venue, Cliftons.
Cliftons is a great venue and is well suited to this type of event.
Unfortunately the next meeting is not scheduled until the 4th of June which, I find disappointing.
