I will be presenting at STAR EAST ...

I am pleased to announce that I will be a track speaker for this year’s STAR EAST conference at Orlando, Florida May14-18. I am very excited to speak this biggest and most popular conference dedicated to software testing. I will be speaking on “10 classic Reasons why Test Automation projects fail” (Track T17- on May 17th) - one of my popular paper till date.

I also excited to get on stage for 2 other occasions other than my presentation –
Lightening talk for 5 minutes on “Traps in test estimations” - see the announcement regarding this by the moderator “Mathew Heusser”, here. It is really privilege to be in the line up for lightening talks that includes “who’s who” in “Software Testing” world – James Bach, Scott Barber, Michael Bolton, Mathew Heusser …

I will be chairing the session for “Test outsourcing track– Track F8” helping the speakers with introduction and time keeping.

This conference being my first STAR EAST conference (first ever) will also is a special one as I will be meeting some special people whose work has greatly inspired me …
I hope to see and chat with people like Cem Kaner, Jon Bach, and Ben Simo and off course James Bach , Michael Bolton and Scott Barber

Drop a line to me if you are interested to meet me and discuss the common passion - software testing…

See you there …

I am sure it's not just luck that got you there but hard work too and I have been seeing it.

I wish you get more wishes from other Indian testers and I also wish other Indian testers to achieve this in future.

I will be at conference too. I shall have an illusion of roaming around the conference floors and listening and talking to people there.

I am sure I can do that, it's been quite sometime since I am practicing it.

Hi Debasis --

I am not the first indian to present in STAR EAST .. even in this year's STAR , I am one of 3 indians presenting ...

Anyway being an indian and presenting in such a big event makes this a special one ..

I need wishes from all fellow indians to be successful at this event ...

Also this should inspire more to follow me in this journey of putting india on global software testing map ....

Pradeep -- I like your idea of being mentally present at the conference. I am sure that day is not far when we 2 can together make a joint presentation
