Conference of the Association for Software Testing (CAST 2009)
Venue: Antlers Hilton
|Event Date/Time: Jul 13, 2009||End Date/Time: Jul 16, 2009|
Unfortunately, many of our test techniques and management maxims come from decades past -- a time when software was simpler and computer time cost more than people. We must foster significant advances in both theory and practice of testing to catch up with the progress in technology and programming. CAST brings together testers from around the globe in hopes of advancing the understanding and practice of software testing.
Why you should attend CAST 2009?
This year's keynote speaker will be Dr. Jonathan Koomey, Project Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Consulting Professor at Stanford University, and author of Turning Numbers Into Knowledge: Mastering the Art of Problem Solving.
Dr. Koomey holds M.S. and PhD degrees from the Energy and Resources Group at UC Berkeley, and an A.B. in History of Science from Harvard University. He is the author or coauthor of eight books and more than 150 articles and reports on electricity used by data centers, energy efficiency and renewable power technologies, energy economics, energy policy, environmental externalities, and global climate change.
But that's only the beginning of what we have in store for you this year! Unlike other conferences in our industry, CAST is set apart by the fact that we involve YOU in each and every discussion and tutorial...
