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.
My session will be…
Four things every Performance Tester needs to know about
In the rapidly changing world of IT, it is easy to get left behind. Project Managers, Test Managers, and Performance Testers need to understand these four strong industry trends: mobile, Agile, cloud, and service virtualisation. In this 20-minute session, you will learn about performance testing solutions in each of these areas.
I will post my slides here after the conference.
I think that my biggest problem will be that there is too much too see. There are quite a few timeslots where I want to see a presentation in each of the three tracks. Undoubtedly the highlight will be Scott Barber from PerfTestPlus. Scott is a great performance tester and teacher. Here is Scott in the Iqnite promo video.
It will be great to see the various tool vendors in the same room. HP (LoadRunner, Quality Center, etc.), Microsoft (Visual Studio Test Professional), Borland (SilkPerformer, QALoad, etc.), TRICENTIS (TOSCA Testsuite) and Compuware (no testing tools, but they have an Application Performance Management solution).
