Attending the top-shelf tutorials, absorbing the keynotes, or participating in Open Season during the track sessions are all great ways to enjoy CAST, and are highly recommended. That still leaves one of the compelling reasons to travel to CAST to attend in person – the hallway conversation. I’m also talking about the lunch conversation, the dinner conversation, and […]

Unity Technologies are the creators of the multiplatform Unity Game Engine. We have more than 4.5 million registered users ranging from individual hobbyists to large professional game studios. And at Unity, we make all our internal software testers go through the BBST Courses from AST. You will not become a good tester by taking a course. […]

So far this year, the AST Grants Committee has approved three grants. The grants so far cover a peer conference, an unconference, and a meetup, further proving AST grants are not constrained to a particular type of event.

Since the AST has started to sponsor other conferences and events, a couple of members had questions as to how this all works and how we distinguish between the different activities. As for now, we have three different ways where money flows in some capacity, according to our mission. Here is how we distinguish between […]

Hello! I know some of you have seen me around, but I’d like to take the chance to introduce myself. I am a newer member of AST, who not very long ago had context blinders removed, revealing what software testing can be. I’ll never go back to prescriptive process! Because I love an adventure, the AST Board […]

Speaking at CAST 2016: Why Would You Want to Do Such a Thing?

Imagine you are minding your own business and suddenly find yourself exposed to a huge group of unknown animals. They all stare at you. You are not sure if they are hostile (or even want to eat you) and there is no tree in sight to climb. It makes you very uneasy. This is how […]

We have another volunteer opportunity to ask our membership for help with. Previously, we’ve asked for help with the AST3 to help manage our technology, and we are always looking for help with teaching BBST Courses. Both of these opportunities are still open for your contributions. This particular request is hoping to locate 2+ people who […]

One of the first signs that this year’s AST board was going to work well together was unanimous agreement that we would not try to do everything ourselves, and that there is more to do than 7 people with families and jobs can handle. We agreed to ask our membership for help, and at the same time, […]

When the new board was sat in October, we had already been talking about our vision for AST’s future. AST has survived for over a decade, though a few years ago, it was a pretty close thing. AST exists today because people fought for it, and brought AST back to being healthier than ever. We […]

We’re proud to introduce a new feature, the Volunteer Spotlight.  We wanted to shine some light on all of the people who work behind the scenes at AST, how much they help our organization, what they do for AST, and why they do it. AST runs on volunteers who are investing their time and energy […]
