Where No Confabulation Goes Untested

Posted by Ben Simo


  • have a conference in order to talk something over

The Conference of the Association for Software Testing (CAST) is coming this July.

I missed last year's conference but have heard great things about it. Based on all the wonderful things I've heard from those that were there, I am looking forward to this year's conference.

The CAST is different than most conferences where people sit and listen to someone present to an audience without public questioning of what is presented. AST encourages testers to test the presentations. Time is allowed for discussion at every presentation. Challenging ideas is encouraged. I could go on. However, I don't think I can push this conference any better than David Gilbert. Therefore, please take a look at David's blog post: CAST in stone.

CAST early bird registration ends this week. Register at

I hope to see you there.

I had a great time at CAST last year, and learned a ton.

Glad to hear you'll be there too - I've enjoyed reading your thoughts recently and will look forward to meeting you in person.
