"Your Development & Testing Processes Are Defective," presented by Mary Poppendieck, explains how lean companies have learned how wasteful defects and queues can be and attack them with a zero tolerance policy that creates outstanding levels of quality, speed, and low cost -- all at the same time. Her book "Lean Software Development: An Agile Toolkit" was awarded the Software Development Productivity Award.

Jon Bach presents "Inside the Master's Mind: Describing the Tester's Art." Jon Bach describes the new language of exploratory testing and how it may revolutionize the way it is perceived. He is most known for being co-inventor (with brother James) of Session-Based Test Management (a way to manage and measure exploratory testing) and most recently the developer of Open-Book testing.

"Testing: The Big Picture" presented by Brian Bryson, covers the critical success factors for organizations challenged with the development and deployment of quality software applications. He takes strategies and lessons from within and beyond the QA industry to provide you with a new perspective on addressing the challenges of quality assurance. At IBM Rational, Brian Bryson is a member of the technical marketing team that plans and delivers IBM Rational's software quality toolset.

Herbert Thompson takes you on an illustrated tour of the top twelve security vulnerabilities in software and shows you how to find these flaws efficiently. Each vulnerability is brought to life through a live exploit followed by a look at the testing technique that would have exposed the bug in The Software Vulnerability Guide: Uncut and Uncensored. Herbert is co-author of "How to Break Software Security" and "The Software Vulnerability Guide" and is the author of numerous papers on software security and testing.

"Testing the Flow of Value in Software Development," presented by Sam Guckenheimer, contrasts the use of metrics to current practices, which often only emphasize effort and bug counts. In these examples, Sam uses Microsoft Visual Studio Team System (VSTS) to collect and report measurements and to suggest corrective actions. Sam Guckenheimer is the Group Product Planner for Microsoft Visual Studio Team System and Microsoft Solutions Framework. He is responsible for the end-to-end external design of the next releases of these products.

Erik van Veenendaal discusses a real-world method for applying structured risk-based testing applicable in most software projects. He describes how risk identification and analysis can be carried out in close cooperation with stakeholders in "The Imperative of Non-Functional System Testing." Erik van Veenendaal Founder of Improve Quality Services BV, has been working as a practitioner and manager in the IT industry since 1987.
