Welcome to the Quality Assurance Discussion Group.
This group was started on March 24th 2008 as I didn't find any group dedicated to QA in the linkedin groups directory. The goals of this group is to get discussions and collaboration going on topics related to Software Quality Assurance.
These discussions could be online through email, wikis, forums, blogs or onsite through book clubs, happy hours, toastmasters, conferences, training sessions, etc.
For now to send a question or comment to the group, send email to me -- Swamy Karnam -- firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post them onto this blog: http://qadg.blogspot.com/
You could also create wiki pages at: http://qatools.net/wiki
I work at Verisign in Dulles, VA which is near Washington, DC. We went to happy hour yesterday to Sweetwater. I also facilitate a book reading club at Verisign. I hope that these local discussions take place at your company and region too and we can set up an annual conference.
I like to ask questions on QA in linked in. You can view them at my profile :

One such tool is called ETAF -- "Extensible Test Automation Framework" which is being used at Verisign and I am working to put in sourceforge at :
