MSTB Software Testing Conference 2009 (SOFTEC 2009)

The MSTB Software Testing Conference 2009 is a leading software testing conference in Malaysia, with participation of local and international speakers from the international quality community. The inaugural SOFTEC conference held in 2008 was supported by the Ministry of Science, Technology & Innovation of Malaysia (MOSTI) and successfully attracted participants from among IT professionals, academia, students, and corporations to gather knowledge and share experience in the areas of software testing.

SOFTEC 2009 is scheduled to host a larger number of local and international participants, with various pre-events and a conference programme that will cater to diverse software testing topics and specialisation. As the organizer of SOFTEC 2009, Malaysian Software Testing Board (www.mstb.org) invites all to participants to this conference, and welcomes all organisations to participate as sponsors and supporters of this event.

SOFTEC09 Theme: Software Testing: Mind The Gap
The 'Mind' concept embraces the scope of attending, taking care, concentrate or simply be watchful, or in the corporate sense refers to managing and addressing the myriad of issues, variances, discrepancies and inconsistencies when “Gaps” exists in any of its core practice and business areas.

Software testing is a cognitively complex technical activity that combines areas of knowledge & techniques, skills, processes, good resources, technology, governance & leadership, and the nurtured experience, towards ensuring software quality that has become a key factor for the success of products and organisations.

SOFTEC2009’s theme “Mind The Gap” therefore explores the challenges, practices, learnings, innovations and the roles of the industry stakeholders in minding the gaps that exist: identifying, addressing and even exploiting the gaps that exist in pursuit of software testing with the ultimate goal of managing the organization’s bottom line and profitability through quality software products.

The Conference will feature keynotes and presentations , with high-quality knowledge materials delivered by members of the international quality engineering community. All lectures will be delivered in English.

Satellite events organized throughout the conference week include exhibitions by leading industry organizations to demonstrate their tools and services, as well as tutorials and test clinic conducted by experts in the industry. Various events will also be held throughout Kuala Lumpur and several regional locations as a lead up to the conference.

In conjunction with SOFTEC 2009, MSTB is also scheduled to host the ISTQB Advanced Level Working Party meeting. Esteemed members of the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) are expected to congregate in Kuala Lumpur for their Advanced Level working group discussions.
