About Marcus Merrel (USA)

Marcus has been in QA-related jobs since 2001, starting with Web Service testing and taking on UI testing using QTP and then Selenium. In the last few years, however, he’s broken into the world of feature-driven software development &Test Automation. 
Currently, Marcus works as a Senior Director of Technical Services at Sauce Labs. He’s an avid piano player and enjoys life in Austin, TX with his wife and two crazy boys.

About Titus Fortner (USA)

Titus first went to the Naval Academy, studied nuclear engineering and became a submarine officer. Afterwards, Titus went back to school for a year to learn computer science. Focusing on Test Automation was an accident, but the influence testing had on the overall system and process was immediately appealing to him. Titus then became a core contributor to the Selenium project
Currently, Titus works as a Senior Solution Architect at Sauce Labs. When he isn’t convincing customers how to better use Page Objects, Titus reads, writes open source code and takes day trips with his blind dog who loves car rides.
