Lee Copeland, Consultant
As a consultant, Lee Copeland has spoken with thousands of software testers in hundreds of different organizations. Generally, he comes away from these discussions depressed with the state of testing. Many organizations neither know about nor have adopted recent important innovations in our field. Lee will discuss nine of the important innovations in testing—the context-driven school, test-first development, really good books, open source tools, session-based test management, testing workshops, freedom of the press, virtualization, and testing in the cloud. Join Lee for his list, and propose others if you’d like. Discuss the keys to innovation and take a test evaluating your organization’s innovation quota.
