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.

Manager Productivity & Test Engineering Europe
Zurich, Switzerland
Ilari Henrik Aegerter manages the core testing team of Productivity & Test Engineering Europe group at the world's biggest online marketplace eBay where he is supported by magnificent test professionals. He is the president of the International Society for Software Testing where he tries to change how software testing is done in the world.

Quite some time ago he became a software tester by pure chance because he urgently needed a job during his studies in general linguistics. He then so much liked the profession that he continued to intensively work on his skills. Today he is an avid follower of the context-driven school of software testing and he believes that software testing is not a clerical job but a profession that needs a high level of proficiency.

In his private time he likes to read a lot of books and comics, spend time with his family, test the possibilities of our world with his sons and test good food in restaurants with his wife. He believes that people are generally good and that there is plenty for everybody in this world. All that results in him smiling a lot.
