I am speaking at STAREAST in Florida this May. STAREAST is one of the biggest testing conferences in the world. My talk is titled ‘Virtual test labs: The next frontier’. Specifically I’ll talk about how virtualization helps solve some of the complex testing problems like setting up multi-tier environments, testing on production-like environments, automating application deployment on environments, and filing highly actionable bugs. I’ll share some challenges and best practices with virtual test labs based on our experience of using virtualization at Microsoft and building virtualization testing tools for testers.

If you are attending the conference or will be in the area at that time (May 4 – 8), drop me a line and we’ll meet up!
