The Association for Software Testing is pleased to announce its tenth annual conference, CAST 2015 “Moving Testing Forward,”to be held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, August 3-5.Since our first CAST we  have seen dramatic changes in the nature of communications and the nature of delivery, from PC to client/server to the web and web services. Deployment is different; monitoring is different, builds and test tooling are different. We have a variety of new models and methods for our testing. CAST is where we talk about how they actually work out in practice, based on experience.At our tenth CAST, in 2015 speakers will be presenting stories, workshops and tutorials regarding their experiences surrounding how to advance software testing.

Conference

CAST is more than a conference, it’s a unique opportunity to learn and discuss not found anywhere else. Each scheduled session is split into two parts. Two thirds of the session is a presentation by a speaker; however the balance of the time is a facilitated “open season”. This open season allows attendees to question, discuss, and test the presentation.What makes CAST truly unique is what takes place in the hallways, at receptions, and during meals. For many the true value of CAST is the ability to discuss topics you are interested in with peers, experts, and academics that are leading change in the industry.

What makes CAST unique?

  • For testers, by testers
  • We strive to advance and improve the science of software testing
  • We share, discuss, and question
  • Meet industry leaders (authors, bloggers, and personalities)
  • Network with peers, and experts
  • Reasonably priced, high ROI

Who should attend CAST?

  • Software Testers, Practitioners, and Managers
  • Scholars and Researchers
  • Students
  • Developers

The core mission of The Association for Software Testing (AST) and CAST is to help build an active community of software testing scholars, practitioners, and learners who can in turn positively influence and advance the practice of software testing.
