SAST is a non-profit and independent organization open for all persons
interested in software testing in Sweden. There are several goals for SAST:
First of all to create a way for members
to exchange experiences and knowledge related to testing. Secondly, to
increase the status of testing by spreading information and knowledge about
software testing. Also, creating a network among testers is important, both
