Can't attend next week's excellent software testing conference, STAR East, in Orlando, Florida?

From STAR East's Press Release

... So that's what STAR stands for: Software Testing Analysis & Review. I had been wondering about that. I wonder if they are affiliated with the EuroSTAR Software Testing Conferences coming up in October 2016?

Open Source Test Automation: Riding the Second Wave
Wednesday, May 4, 2016 - 10:00 am to 11:00 am
David Dang | Zenergy Technologies

"After the first wave of open source test automation tools like Fitnesse and Watir, we are now in a stronger, second wave led by Selenium-based frameworks. This powerful swell, fueled by a major shift toward web-based applications on desktops and mobile devices, is changing how corporations tackle software test automation.

Effective and Efficient Mobile Testing in an Agile Environment | Keynote by Dynatrace Industry Technical Presentation
Wednesday, May 4, 2016 - 3:00 pm to 3:45 pm
Rachel Obstler, Eric Elkins | Keynote by Dynatrace

"If it were easy to produce high-quality mobile apps, everyone would be doing it. But mobile development is tough. Consumers expect constant enhancements and a great experience on an ever-growing variety of devices.

Thursday, May 5, 2016 - 4:15pm to 5:15pm
Dawn Haynes | PerfTestPlus, Inc.

"Once upon a time, Dawn Haynes was a software tester. Now she’s most often found in the classroom, helping others tackle the same day-to-day challenges that she has encountered on projects for the past thirty years. Dawn now recognizes that, although she had great instincts about testing that initially made her incredibly clever and effective at breaking software, it’s been the subtle questions, mantras, and foibles she’s encountered throughout her career that demonstrate how wrong some of her testing ideas have been. Now, Dawn reflects on how committed she was to those fledgling assertions..." Learn More
