Where are the developer-testers and tester-developers?

Posted by Harry Robinson, Software Engineer in Test

On Saturday, February 24, the Mountain View Googleplex will offer hospitality, support and free munchies for the first-ever "Developer-Tester/Tester-Developer Summit" -- a peer-driven gathering of developer-testers and tester-developers from around the industry to share knowledge and code.

The Summit is being organized by Elisabeth Hendrickson of Quality Tree Software and Chris McMahon of Lyris Technologies, who describe the day this way:

Our emphasis will be on good coding practices for testing, and good testing practices for automation. That might include topics like: test code and patterns; refactoring test code; creating abstract layers; programmatically analyzing/verifying large amounts of data; achieving repeatability with random tests; OO model-based tests; creating domain specific languages; writing test fixtures or harnesses; and/or automatically generating large amounts of test data.
