This is my presentation on Performance Testing in the Cloud that Chris De Lorenzo and I delivered at the Iqnite Australia 2014 conference on October 16th. The slides from Chris on the state of performance testing at one of the world’s largest online betting companies were excellent. The original presentation can be downloaded from SlideShare.
Image macros – those pictures superimposed with vaguely humorus text – are everywhere on the Internet. I decided that it was time for someone to create some that performance testers could relate to; something we could all print out and pin to our cubicle walls.
To get everything started, I have created 8 images. Maybe they will become successful memes and help spread performance testing culture across the world…or maybe they will just generate a chuckle or two.
If you create your own performance testing-related image macro, please leave a comment (with a link), or send me an email. I will collect them all on this page.

Today was officially my last day at JDS Australia. I worked at JDS from November 2nd, 2005 to August 22nd, 2014 (8 years, 10 months). I was employee number 6, and was the first performance tester to be hired. Over the years the company grew to over 60 people in 4 states, and it was great to be involved in helping the business grow.
I am looking forward to seeing continued growth, and watching the business continue to help customers.

I am quite excited about the upcoming Iqnite software testing conference which will be held in Sydney in October. The conference programme is full of interesting sessions, and it is always stimulating to be surrounded by a couple of hundred people who are all interested in software testing.
I will be speaking at Iqnite in one of the sponsor sessions (thanks HP). I hope you will come along and say hi.
