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.”

When Cultures Collide

What do these books have in common – “When Cultures Collide”, “Understanding Cultural
Differences”, “Beyond Culture”? Yes, it involves people from different cultures trying to interact with each other and sustain in this diverse corporate environment which we now call – Our Workplace.  This session is based on our real life experiences interacting, observing and working with people from different cultures, backgrounds, race, and religion in a corporate environment.

As testers, we had to understand and study how different verbal, oral and behavioral patterns are interpreted in different ways by different people. In this session, we try to highlight these different communication patterns with examples. We will show how understanding and recognizing these patterns can help testers to sustain and collaborate with others. As the saying goes, “Solutions are often simple but getting to it is complicated”. Come join us as we share our research and experiences, and discuss how software testers can become more effective communicators.
