I am writing to let you know that I am starting a new Software QA & Testing meetup that will kickoff on October 22, 2008 at the Platform Lab in Columbus, Ohio. These will be held every other month and is intended for IT and testing professionals to discuss topics, trends, and other issues that relate to software QA and testing.

The goal is to focus less on formal presentations (however that will be needed to kickoff discussion for the first meeting) and to get participants to discuss their own experiences and ideas based on a given topic with the use of a facilitator. The format will be somewhat loose and is intended to be more informal in nature, but informative as well.

I invite you to attend the first kick-off meeting as I will facilitate a discussion on the topic of Exploratory Testing. I will also explain the vision behind the meetup in greater detail.
