Foster City, CA (PRWEB) April 13, 2006
LogiGear CEO and founder Hung Nguyen will give an in-depth tutorial entitled “Strategy and Tactics for Global Test Automation” at the first annual Conference of the Association for Software Testing (CAST) on June 5th - 7th, 2006, in Indianapolis, IN.
“Offshore testing and test automation are two of the biggest challenges facing software quality professionals today” said Nguyen. “Testing teams are becoming increasingly distributed, creating additional management, communication, and cultural challenges. At the same time, they are expected to test with fewer resources and less time, which makes effective test automation critical.”
Nguyen’s tutorial will address the many risks and challenges inherent to offshore testing and test automation, and then discuss a process whereby testing organizations can effectively leverage both test automation and offshore testing to reduce testing time, increase test coverage, and improve software quality.
“In talking with people throughout the software testing practice, I’ve consistently found that companies are challenged by offshore testing and test automation” said Nguyen. “Offshore testing has produced extra headaches and many late nights for testing teams. And most organizations aren’t able to effectively leverage test automation, due to a lack of good methodology for building their automated testing framework. It is possible to bridge these gaps to have successful test automation with a global team, but it requires the right combination of people, methods, and tools.”
CAST 2006 is the first annual event held by the Association for Software Testing, a nonprofit professional service organization dedicated to advancing the understanding and practice of software testing. The event will feature three days of interactive learning and discussion on the theme of “Influencing the Practice”. In addition to Nguyen’s tutorial, it will include keynote and presentations by several notable software testing thought leaders including Dr. Cem Kaner, Professor of Software Engineering at Florida Institute of Technology and Director of Florida Tech's Center for Software Testing Education & Research.
