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 Tabcorp (one of the world’s largest online betting companies) were excellent. The original presentation can be downloaded from SlideShare.
This year was the second time that I have spoken at the Iqnite Australia conference. This year, Iqnite Australia was was held from October 16-17 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition centre.
The conference was a great opportunity to hear from experts in the field of software testing and to meet with other practitioners. Over 200 software testing professionals and vendors came to the conference to discuss the latest industry trends.

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.

This year HP Discover (Las Vegas) was bigger than ever, with more than 11,000 attendees and nearly 700 sessions over 3 days. HP Discover is a great place to learn more about HP Software products, meet some great people, and get a peek at the product roadmaps for the next year.
I didn’t make it to the conference this year, as JDS asked that I not submit a presentation abstract. Instead, I have collected all the sessions from the Software (Quality and Performance Validation) track that I thought looked interesting, and that might be interesting for other performance testers.

I am pleased to let you know that I will be speaking at SoftEd Fusion 2012 in Sydney this September. Fusion is a new conference organised by Software Education, which combines their STANZ testing conference and their Software Development Conference (SDC).
Fusion will run over 2 days, with sessions on Agile methodologies, Enterprise Architecture, Cloud testing, business analysis, test automation, performance testing, and project management. There should be some great learning (and networking) opportunities, so this will be one of the best ways you could spend your training budget this year if your job involves creating software at large companies.
