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.”

The Context Driven Tester In The Lean Startup

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

The Lean Startup movement focuses relentlessly on pushing value to customers quickly and reducing waste, in part through encouraging a culture of exploration and experimentation. As testers, we can apply our critical thinking and analysis skills, and our willingness to be creative and notice what no one else does to greatly improve product/market fit and generate revenue-producing information for our firms.  In this talk, we will examine some of the main ideas of the Lean Startup movement (build-measure-learn, A/B testing, minimum viable product, and continuous innovation) in the light of the principles of context-driven testing. The current interest in Lean techniques in the enterprise indicates a massive demand for testing skills that may not be identified as such.  We will map our experiences as testers to the Lean Startup ideas (and buzzwords) to assist in making the case for a crucial role for testers in the product marketing function.
