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.”

Beyond the UI: Using Tools to Improve Testing

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

As testers we have a wide range of tools that can help us gain a deeper understanding of the application being tested, and better understand the source of observed failures. When we observe defects in the UI, we may be uncertain whether the failure is a result of an errant request or an issue with processing by the middle tier.  If the API is available for testing before the UI, we can lose valuable time by waiting for front-end code. In this session we will focus on using browser consoles, testing APIs, and validating results in a database. 

Each section will be divided into a brief description, examples of application, and common tools and practices.  Many tools are available at low or no cost within the browser, and these tools will help us provide more details to developers and management as we document issues.
