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.”

What's My Context?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We talk about context and we identify ourselves as driven by context. But do we really understand what “context” means? Let’s get together and find out!

In this interactive workshop, we’ll use group exercises to explore the idea of context and some practical means for helping to discover it:

  • Its dimensions and attributes (as many as we can think of)
  • Its manifestations
  • Heuristics for discovering context elements of it that may be essential others that could be peripheral

A final debrief will give participants the opportunity to consolidate and share their insights and experiences.
