CAST 2015 has ended
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.

Join us this summer for our tenth annual conference in downtown Grand Rapids at the beautiful Grand Plaza Hotel August 3-5, as we explore “Moving Testing Forward.”

Feedback And Its Importance In Delivering High Quality Software.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Broadly, feedback comes in three forms: appreciation, coaching and evaluation. Often the receiver wants to hear one type of feedback, while the giver actually means something else. In your testing career, you will need to understand how to give and receive feedback, from bug reports to discussing quality with executives. Ken will share his experiences of the feedback process during various points in his software development career.

Areas where this type of information will help you:
- Coaching: giving and receiving comments during test case and session-based reviews.
- Evaluation: developing relationships with various levels of management where criticism is encouraged and used to move the organization forward.
- Appreciation: helping to preserve the value of the software you are testing.

Think bug reports.

Attendees will take away:
- How to give and receive feedback, by identifying the various triggers
- Ways of practicing it in a safe environment
