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.”

This track session is about the world’s first Context Driven Test-education that runs over one and a half year is currently ongoing with two classes in Sweden and this presentation is about the thoughts behind and the challenges creating such an education. It is also about the results we could see from our students and the value they could provide from day one.

There are government sponsored professional educations that focus on specific needs of the industry and this year the Software Testing-education has been remade after a CDT-model. When structuring the education one thing was clear: One and a half year is really not that much time for covering even the most common test contexts so we had to limit ourselves and focus on the core of testing, giving a solid foundation for the students to develop their skills on.
