The Summer is usually a leisurely paced time of year — you’ve got your days at the beach, road trips and fun in the sun. The software testing conference scene is no different, really, but there are a few major notable shows to take note of as we get deep into the summer heat:
- International Symposium on Software Testing and Analysis (ISSTA): Taking place next week, ISSTA is the leading research symposium on software testing and analysis, bringing together academics, industrial researchers, and practitioners to exchange new ideas, problems, and experience on how to analyze and test software systems.
- ChinaTest 2014: James Bach and some other big names in software testing are at this major Chinese show this month.
- SoCraTes 2014: The show is all about the sustainable creation of useful software in a responsible way. In short, everyone who is concerned with coding, testing, code quality, software craftsmanship would want to be at this one — so that means testers! Check out this one in Germany.
Conference of the Association for Software Testing (CAST) 2014: CAST’s 9th Annual software testing conference in New York City is one of the most well-known amongst testers, and for good reason: it perennially features major testing players including James Bach, Matthew Heusser, Michael Bolton and Fiona Charles, and is interactive in format with debates and panels taking center stage, along with content built by testers for testers. uTest will also be covering the event from NYC in August, along with some choice interviews, so stay tuned to Social and the Blog!
