CAST 2013 has ended

What we learn from our experiences helps shape us as human beings. What we learn from the experiences of others can give us new insight and new perspectives. At this year’s conference speakers will share with you the lessons that they have learned in Software Testing, as well as how these lessons influence the way that we approach testing both now and in the future.

In an ideal world we would happily go along and collect experiences. These experiences would lead to learning and every mistake creates a lesson learned upon which we fine-tune our actions.

My experience, however, is that I sometimes utterly fail. There are times where I don’t even know what the lesson is I could learn from. The state I am in is one of confusion. Confusion can either be paralyzing or a starting point for a deeper learning experience, which is not a straightforward matter but a complex long-term path.

During this session I will explore some of my own failures and identify patterns that lead to them. I also want to include the experiences of the audience and engage in a discussion about failures and what came out of them.
