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.”

Testing with a Zone Defense

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

At one time or another, every tester hears the dreaded question, “Why didn’t you guys catch these bugs?” We all have some standard responses (and they are most likely true), but what can we learn about our testing when we look beyond the easy answers? Pamela Gillaspie proposes that the key to improving your testing is determining the areas where bugs are slipping past your defenses. When you group the bugs into “zones”, you can devise a strategy to cover these zones more effectively.

Join Pamela as she shares her experience as defensive coordinator, addressing the developers’ playbook (What kinds of recurring problems do we see?), trick plays (The user is doing what?), and penalties (That wasn’t in the requirements!)
