I'm Attending!August 05, 2020August 06, 2020CAST 2020UTCThee Conference of the Association for Software Testing (CAST) 2020 is headed to Austin, TX, USA. The conference will be held August 3-6, 2020, at the Hilton Austin.
<i>What makes CAST unique?</i>
- For testers, by testers
- We strive to advance and improve the science of software testing
- We share, discuss, and question
- Network with peers, and experts
- Reasonably priced, high ROI
<i>Who should attend CAST?</i>
- Software Testers, Practitioners, and Managers
- Scholars and Researchers
The core mission of The Association for Software Testing (AST) and CAST is 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.
CAST is more than a conference, it’s a unique opportunity to learn and discuss not found anywhere else. Each scheduled session is split into two parts. Half of the session is a presentation by a speaker, however the balance of the time is a facilitated “open season”. This open season allows attendees to question, discuss, and test the presentation.
What makes CAST truly unique is what takes place in the hallways, at receptions, during meals, and at Lightning talks. For many the true value of CAST is the ability to discuss topics you are interested in with peers, experts, and academics that are leading change in the industry. At CAST you are among friends…let’s confer!
<i>Mission and Style of CAST</i>
The conference is designed not only to allow but also to encourage a high-level of interaction among presenters and participants. Flexibility is built into the schedule to facilitate productive brainstorming and impromptu debates. The conference organizers are observant and responsive: when this interaction builds the interest and energy for a particular topic, the flow of events and allocation of time to topics will be fine-tuned. Trained, seasoned moderators will help ensure that discussion sessions are productive.
<i>CAST is free from thinly veiled sales pitches and offers up fresh content:</i>
CAST sessions are about experience, practice, and ideas — not just products. All sessions are related to the conference theme to enable in-depth exploration of each topic. Most of the presentations and tutorials at CAST are first-run content. We’ve assembled a cast of practitioners and thought-leaders with interesting stories and provoking ideas.
<i>CAST is accompanied with unique tutorials:</i>
AST lines up unique interactive full-day tutorials — each led by recognized thought leaders in their areas of expertise.
Our hope is that CAST helps you advance the understanding and practice of testing — at your organization and around the globe. You’ll have opportunities to share your ideas and learn from thought-leaders, trainers, authors, and peers. CAST is a participatory conference where everyone is encouraged to participate and enjoy.
<i>CAST puts CONFER back into Conference:</i>
What makes CAST unique is that we focus on the confer part of the word conference over anything else. Each scheduled session consists of a presentation followed by facilitated discussion about that presentation. Unless instructed otherwise, you may only ask clarifying questions while a speaker is presenting. Once a speaker is done, it becomes Open Season – at which point the floor is opened for discussion.Austin, TX

I'm Attending!July 13, 2020July 17, 2020CommCon Virtual 2020UTCHistorically CommCon has been a very different conference to the others; a residential conference with everything under one ticket price, set in a beautiful countryside hotel in the UK. COVID-19 has completely changed the conference landscape but with communications at the heart of how people are dealing with the current situation, it's important now, more than ever before, that we share the stories about building RTC experiences which are literally keeping businesses running and families connected.
CommCon Virtual is different to other virtual conferences - it wouldn't be in the spirit of CommCon if it wasn't. We haven't just moved a conference schedule online - the world doesn't work like that when you're not at a conference venue, sitting down to listen to a speaker - you may be 5 timezones from where the conference is being "held" and it be impossible to take part in any real conversation throughout the event. Instead, we're planning on releasing 4 talks every day for a week on YouTube - 2 of those will be keynotes, 15 will be speaker-driven talks, and the remaining 3 will be interviews with our Platinum Sponsors with Q&A sessions with the speaker after every session.
The 2-track conference takes place at Pier Sixty. Other activities will take place at different locations throughout Manhattan.
