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.”

Waterfall, Agile and Beyond: The Power of an Exploratory Tester

This talk is about how testers skilled in exploratory testing can help any software project, no matter which development methodology is followed in the project.

Do you face a situation where the customers are expecting more in less time? Is your project stuck and teams are playing the blame game? Are customers finding important bugs before your test teams report? Are your testers struggling to cope up with the changes in testing models being used? Do you agree that though the models have evolved, the problems seem to reappear.

If you answered yes to above, meet Ajay Balamurugadas, a student of context-driven school of testing who answers these five important questions about ‘The Power of an Exploratory Tester'.

  1. What is Exploratory Testing and how is an exploratory tester more powerful?
  2. Who can do exploratory testing?
  3. Why exploratory testing is suited for most kinds of projects?
  4. When exploratory testing should be performed?
  5. Where do tools fit in exploratory testing?
