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.”

Should Testers Code?

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

Some people have suggested that the days of the human, thinking-only tester are numbered. Others believe that time writing code means time spent not testing, and that coding subtly changes the perspective of the tester away from the customer.

We invited two leaders in the field, Henrik Andersson and Jeff "Cheesy" Morgan, to assume these opposing positions and lead a debate. Hear both perspectives, see what aligns with your context, and make your own informed decision to move your own part of test forward.
