I attended the Conference of the Association of Software Testing (CAST) this week, which is hosted by the Association for Software Testers (AST). I was very impressed by not only the topics but also the great people. It was nice being able to sit down and discuss topics that we all face out in the field (lack of requirements, process, communication, etc). There were tutorials on different topics like metrics and agile development.

It is very important to make sure that there are no broken links on your site. A link may be active when your first added it but as the days, months, years go by the link may end up being broken.
Below are some open source tools that can help you find those broken links.
I have been in the software testing field for over 9 years. I have played various roles ranging anywhere from manual tester, performance tester, business analyst to web developer.
