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.

All those implementation details get in the way, even when we're confident we've abstracted them all away.  In this workshop we'll experience this firsthand: we'll figure out the "right" set of customer actions, implement them in an automation stack where we are the various components, and then execute a few test cases and see what we learn.
