Cem Kaner - Software Test Luminary Award Winner
This is an award voted on by practitioners (worldwide), given to a person who they think has made a strong, long-term impact on the field. Dr. Cem Kaner is the third award winner.
The two before him were
•Gerald Weinberg (you've probably studied his work on software quality, software measurement and software requirements) and
•Ross Collard (not often mentioned by name, but he's played a significant role in helping the field sort out what belongs in courses on software testing—Ross helped found and fund Florida Tech's Center for Software Testing Education & Research).
