Our Bronze Sponsor:


Test faster. Release Sooner.

Everyone wants to release the next hot app or bulletproof their website. But until now, it took a unique breed to thoroughly test them and to ensure they’ll perform at scale. That’s because functional and performance testing have traditionally been challenging, complex, costly and time-consuming. But not anymore. SOASTA is driven by a radical idea: Make powerful testing accessible to anyone. Do it in the cloud. Make it visual and far less complex. Deliver immediate actionable intelligence in real time. And incorporate testing for gesture and touch interfaces. Our SOASTA Platform, products and services are like no one else’s—uniquely innovative, flexible, fast, affordable and exceptionally effective. And we think that’s cool.
