QualiTest Group, world’s second largest software testing and quality assurance company, has announced today that it is a platinum sponsor of the Conference of the Association for Software Testing (CAST). The event will take place August 11-13 at the Kimmel Center in New York City.
In its 9th year of existence, the mission of CAST is designed to “help build an active community of software testing scholars, practitioners, and learners who can in turn positively influence and advance the practice of software testing”. The topic of CAST 2014 is “The Art and Science of Testing”, where Software Testers, Managers and Developers will gather to present and discuss the approach of testing as mathematics and physics vs. an exploration of psychology and philosophy.
QualiTest Group is excited about sponsoring CAST 2014, as the core values between the two organizations correlate closely. QualiTest places an emphasis on encouraging the creativity of its employees, as they understand the value of curiosity, imagination and ingenuity in a tester, while maintaining a strong analytical and technical background.
The speakers at CAST 2014 will include such testing gurus as Ilari Henrik Aegerter, manager of Test Engineering for eBay in Europe, and James Bach, software testing expert. However, the significant speakers are not all that attracts numerous people in the industry to CAST; each session is split into two parts, with a presentation from a speaker, and a facilitated open forum, where the attendees can question, discuss and test the presentation.
Yaron Kottler, QualiTest CEO, commented: “We are pleased to be a sponsor of CAST 2014. We look forward to continuing to build a strong relationship with the CAST community and exchange the knowledge that can be shared at these symposiums.”
