Tweet Bits from #StarEast 2014

Star East 2014 was held in Orlando, Florida this year from May 4-May 9, 2014.

There are so many great conference testing conferences that I am unable to attend and I am so very thankful to the attendees that take the time to post great testing information on Twitter.

Below you will find the Tweets that caught my attention over the last week at Star East.

This is a long post breaking all the blogging rules…but what do you expect, it was a long week of conference sessions!  Stick with the post to the very end and I will be it will be well worth your time.
