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.

As testers, the nature of our work demands us to think differently about how we view the systems we investigate. Our daily discoveries and experiments can point to the need for change, which makes people (ourselves included) uncomfortable. How do you make a transition in the way you test and work to be effective within development teams? What is required of you and/or your teams to make big leaps into unknown territory? Lanessa shares stories, examples, and artifacts to demonstrate how to eliminate silos, create new rhythms and use resistance to boost your confidence. Anecdotes from encounters with forms of bewilderment illustrate how we can strengthen ourselves as test professionals to effectively make our way through not-so-comfortable situations. You will see how the use of both artistic and scientific processes help us become sensitive to and courageous about our own creative endeavors, to bring out our best work, to influence a quality culture, and aid evolution of our careers and organizations.
