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.”

Visualizing Testability

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

The simplest way Maria Kedemo knows of describing testability is “How easy it is to test a specific product”. Low testability would be anything that slows you down or makes it harder to test. Frustrated testers might be a symptom of such. A high degree of testability helps not only testers, but everyone involved in the development of the product.

Through out her career as a test manager she has seen her fellow testers suffer daily from things affecting their testing negatively. Flaky test environments, buggy code, exclusion from relevant information, difficulties in creating test data and lack of knowledge in a specific domain were only a few of the problems.

The suffering was not the testers’ alone. It affected the project, the development teams and the organization. So Maria decided to make “Visualizing Testability” the mission for year 2014, thus moving testability forward to a common awareness and ownership.

Maria will share:
- Why she thinks testability is important.
- The problems lack of testability caused.
- How techniques used to visualise testability helped her team.
- How helping non-testing peers understand testability helped her team.
