Over the years, SOFTEC has grown to become premier software testing event in the Asian region through support from both domestic audience and members of the Asian Software Testing Alliance (ASTA).

SOFTEC Asia 2013 is a natural expansion of geographical coverage for the conference. The conference will have some 30 international and domestic speakers who will collectively deliver some 40 Keynotes and Plenary presentations as well as Tutorial and Workshop sessions.

The Theme

SOFTEC Asia 2013 has adopted the theme of Test the Walk and this is closely related to Malaysia’s stated intention to instil Software Quality Assurance (SQA) practices across all sectors of the community.

Briefly explained, the theme encapsulates a focus on ensuring that Malaysia is moving in the right direction as the country continues to pursue software quality excellence through learning from the wealth of experience and knowledge of SQA experts and thought leaders from around the globe.

At the same time, the SOFTEC Asia 2013 will also be a platform sharing Malaysia’s own initiatives and learning experience in developing its software testing expertise and capability at a national level.
