CAST 2010

I try not to do these shameless plugs too often, but I'm excited about this one.

I'm presenting a session at this year's CAST 2010 on Communicating with NonTesters. We'll talk about how to present information in a way that whoever you're talking to really understands it. Throughout the session we'll cover the dreaded "status report", the art of writing a defect explanation for a (probably angry) customer, and discuss how to write a risk assessment that doesn't make you look like you're panicking over nothing.

I'd love to see you there!

Here's the conference info:

About CAST

CAST reflects the AST's core mission: to build community amongst scholars, practitioners, and students for the advancement of the practice of software testing. In 2010, CAST aims to leverage peer collaboration to build an enhanced understanding of how various skills influence tester effectiveness.

CAST offers a unique opportunity to learn and confer with others that simply isn’t found at other conferences. Each scheduled session allocates time for facilitated “open season” discussions that encourage participants to question and challenge the presentation. What takes place in the hallways, at receptions, and during meals and lightning talks truly sets CAST apart; for many attendees, the greatest value is derived from the opportunity to discuss and delve into the topics that matter to them.
