It’s hard for me to remember what it was like to start using Watir in the mid-2000’s, but Jon Franchi reminded me a little about it when we spoke about his experiences.

I am hopeful for the future of software testing in San Diego if they group becomes a place for people to step out of their circle of comfort, to mentor each other, to learn and grow.

I also like to use these events to help others get involved in open-source software, and am hoping to see other contributors to projects like Selenium and Watir attend. — Bret Pettichord
