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.”

Building A Culture Of Quality, A Real World Example

“Quality is everyone’s responsibility.”  This statement is frequently used in the software industry when talking about the role of a tester, often times without an explanation of what it means or how to achieve it. If there is a description provided, the focus is often on the skills and task of the tester. Focusing on the tester seems almost ironic when the statement talks about making quality *everyone’s* responsibility.

So how do we make quality everyone’s responsibility? We build a culture of quality; all the tools, skills, and processes in the world won’t help raise the quality bar without quality being part of the DNA of the company. How the heck do we do that?

Josh will give real world examples from Amazon and Salesforce that have helped build and evolve a quality culture from the ground up. He will also share painful examples that can become a reality if you don't build quality into your culture.
