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.

Adding value in an agile context

At a first glance you might relate testing in an agile context to abbreviations like TDD, BDD, ATDD. Though these are often valuable practices they are closer related to checking of the software. The point is to run them often and to help developer to know when to stop coding. Henrik will make his case of why developers should take responsibility of these kinds of checks and not the tester. So, what should we as testers then do? Testers contribute with lots of value. We have an advantage over the computer, we are sapient! We set out to find new information about the software by exploration and learning. We relate and adapt to users and business objectives of the product. Let´s have a look at tasks and contributions a tester do to be valuable in an agile team, such as: sprint planning, calculating "testers’ velocity", communicating the health of the product, track and visualize test ideas and bugs and more. How a tailored and modified combination of Scrum and Session Based Test Management can be of help.
