CAST 2014 has ended


The Association for Software Testing is pleased to announce its ninth annual conference, CAST 2014 “The Art and Science of Testing”, to be held in New York, NY, August 11-13. To some, software testing is an outgrowth of engineering, mathematics and physics, while to others, testing is an exploration of psychology, philosophy or sociology. At CAST 2014, conference speakers will share their stories and experiences surrounding software testing, whether bound by rules and laws of science and experimentation, or expressed through creativity, imagination, and artistry.

Join us this summer for our ninth annual conference in downtown New York City at the beautiful Kimmel Center located next to Washington Square Park August 11-13, as we explore the art and science of testing.

'He doesn't like you! I don't like you either!' QA and Dev don't have to be enemies!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Hilary is often introduced by developers to other developers like this: "This is Hilary, she's QA" *cue groan* "No, no - she's *good* QA". So why is she “*good* QA”, and what makes every other tester these developers have worked with *bad*? Hilary analyzes the different ways in which developers often despise or misunderstand QA, and what we as testers can do to not only make them see us as the good guys, but also work together in perfect harmony and maybe even grab a beer together as friends. Attendees learn specific complaints and misunderstandings that developers often have about testers (gathered by a tester allowed in their inner circles!) and why we should care about what they think about QA and testers. Attendees take back how to better understand, work with, and overall be amazing cohesive teams with, our developers, as well as better ourselves in the process. This talk is PG-13!
