First Responder Discount Ends Feb 28th

The theme for CAST 2014 is “The Art and Science of Testing.” In some contexts and by some people software testing is considered to be more of a science and by others more of an art. To some, it’s an outgrowth of computer science, mathematics and physics. To others, it’s an expression of soft sciences like psychology, philosophy and human behavior, discovery and interpersonal social interactions. Still to others, it’s unbounded by rules and laws of science but is about free-flowing creativity, imagination, interpretation and artistry.

At CAST 2014 speakers will be presenting their experiences surrounding software testing – whether the experience supports testing as an art or a science. So join us this summer for our ninth annual conference in downtown New York City August 11-13, 2014.

CAST is designed not only to allow but also to encourage a high-level of interaction among presenters and participants, we put the confer back into conference. To that end attendance is limited to 250 attendees, be sure to register early!
