The Workshop on Regulated Software Testing (WREST) New for 2011! Scott Barber, PerfTestPlus, Inc. Join us at The Workshop on Regulated Software Testing (WREST) - a free full-day bonus session held on Friday after the conference concludes. A unique peer workshop, WREST is dedicated to improving the practice of testing regulated systems. We define regulated software as any system that is subject to an internal or external review.

WREST relies on its attendees to make the workshop a success. There are no formal presentations, only experience reports with plenty of time designated for facilitated discussion. We hope to learn from each other by hearing the success and (especially!) failure stories of real practitioners who test regulated software. Have a problem you want input on solving? You can bring that to the workshop as well - just be prepared to participate! WREST is hosted by Scott Barber.
