About Cem Kaner
Cem Kaner is Professor of Software Engineering and Director of the Center for Software Testing Education & Research at the Florida Institute of Technology, which was recently (2012) rated as a Tier 1 Best National University by U.S. News & World Report, as one of America's Top Colleges by Forbes, and as the Best College for Return on Investment in Florida by Bloomberg Businessweek. He holds doctorates in law and in experimental psychology.
Kaner is the lead author of Testing Computer Software, Lessons Learned in Software Testing, Bad Software, and second author of the BBST Instructor's Manual. Kaner is also the primary creator of the widely praised collection of BBST online testing courses including Foundations of Software Testing, Bug Advocacy, and Test Design. He is one of the founders of the Association for Software Testing and, for many years, served as Vice-President of Education. He founded AST’s Education Special Interest Group and served as Chair for several years. Under his leadership, AST sponsored BBST classes that reached hundreds of testers around the world and trained dozens of instructors to teach using BBST materials.
Kaner co-created the Los Altos Workshops on Software Testing with Brian Lawrence & Drew Pritsker. Kaner now hosts the LAWST-style Workshops on Teaching Software Testing (now in their 12th year). The LAWST format has been widely adopted in the United States (e.g. AWTA, IWST, WReST, and WOPR), Canada (TWST, WWST, and POST), Europe (DEWT, GATE, and SWET), New Zealand (KWST) and Australia (OZWST).
Kaner has also played a role in the software testing community as an attorney, focused on the law of software quality. He helped draft legislation and judicial guidelines. His work helped shape (and is repeatedly quoted in) the American Law Institute's Principles of the Law of Software Contracts.
Cem has been honored for his legal work by the American Law Institute, which elected him as a member, and by the Association for Computing Machinery with its "Making a Difference Award" which is "presented to an individual who is widely recognized for work related to the interaction of computers and society. The recipient is a leader in promoting awareness of ethical and social issues in computing."
