    Presentation Overview

    Building Web Applications is unlike any other kind of software development. How can you ensure your Web application is giving users a good experience if they can access your software at any time and in any number? Frank Cohen will outline a conceptual framework for building Web software, offers such practical Web-software test methods as state and boundary testing, and introduces a free open-source set of tools and a scripting language called Load to help with your testing.
