At the STARS banquet, I presented a short overview of the research on Combinatorial Testing. I was glad when Dr. Xie said I did a good job and also commented on my flaws. The main flaw was I did not focus on the selling point of our approach, which is the fault-detection capability. The presentation would have been a lot better if I had made that point clearer. Overall, the banquet went very well and I met Ken Tate, one of the Director of Development & External Relations in the Department of Computer Science. This banquet served as a great networking opportunity, but unfortunately, I left my business cards in my room.
