SOA Testing - It's gaining traction

STARWEST 2007 is the premier conference for QA/Testing professionals. With over 1000 attendees focused on learning the latest testing techniques, the conference serves as a benchmark for what is relevant to the testing community.

This year, we are thrilled to see the testing community starting to focus on and learn about the nuances of modern web services-based SOA Testing. The increasing number of SOA Testing related offering at STARWEST 2007 serves as a good bechmark for the increase in relevance and activity in this area. The following talks and courses are presented this year realted to SOA Testing:

The Coming SOA Revolution: What It Means To Testers -- Frank Cohen, PushToTest

Testing SOA Applications: What’s New, What’s Not -- Brian Bryson, IBM

Ensuring Quality in Web Services -- Chris Hetzler, Appolis Software

The Art and Science of SOA Testing -- Mamoon Yunus & Rizwan Mallal, Crosscheck Networks

This is the second event where we are presenting a day long course on SOA Testing. STAREAST 2007, hosted in Orlando, FL was the first day long course offered exclusively on SOA Testing in the industry. We are on v2 of this course with more structured Labs. I hope the attendees like it more than the v1 offering at STAREAST 2007 - although an 8.9 average from 28 attendees will be tough to beat.
