About testingeducation.org

Cem Kaner created The Center for Software Testing Education & Research, initially known as The Software Testing Education Research Laboratory, testingeducation.org, during his years at the Florida Institute of Technology with the purpose of “[posting] our collection of resources for people who want to teach Software Testing, or who want to learn Software Testing”. On this website, all Creative-Common licensed BBST® materials have been made available to teachers and students along with other useful materials created or curated by the two authors. For a more in-depth understanding of the history and evolution of BBST® courses read Cem Kaner’s article, Evolution of the BBST Courses.
