The creation of this group was suggested by Paul Holland. Being an important hi-tech centre, having a lot of software testers working in large and small companies as well as in the Government, till now Ottawa lacked a tester's metup group. The proposed discussion topics of this group, as I see it, may address the following:
-- To discuss traditional and new methodologies in software testing and s/w quality assurance (QA)
-- To share information about trends in s/w QA related to emerging applications (mobile, for example or "big data")
-- Invite and listen to gurus of software testing
-- Tester at work-1: big companies vs. startups vs. government
-- Tester at work-2: between managers and designers. Test-driven development?
-- Agile testing? Experience, personal stories (successful or not very). Methodologies in general (i.e., agile vs. waterfall)
-- Anything that people аре interested in. Bring you own topic!
