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.

Psychology and Engineering of Testing

In a dysfunctional setting, testers are seen by many as a blocking gate keeper police who do unskilled work by “executing” scripted “test cases”. That might cause agilistas to think that testers are no longer needed as soon as enough test automation is in place. In an equally uninformed setting, developers often have a limited view on what software testing is all about. Jan Eumann and Ilari Henrik Aegerter tell the story of how initial suspicion against testers within the European Product Development at eBay evolved into a strong shared view on the value of testing and how testers gained respect as embedded members of agile scrum teams. Learn why agile teams need embedded testers and what helps to make the collaboration within a team successful. Gain insights into how engineering driven and exploratory testing can be combined and how a holistic product view helps the whole team to achieve greatness.
