I’ve just been offered the chance to teach a full-day course on performance testing at STPCON Fall 2013 – my favorite conference for performance testers and engineers. For this course I will be re-working the typical introduction to performance testing training materials that we’ve been re-using over the last 20 years. Everything will be updated to help you focus on the primary concepts and skills required to be an effective performance tester. Sure, we’ll cover processes – but we’ll focus on critical understandings of performance in DevOps and Continuous Performance Automation first. Sure, we’ll cover technical performance test objectives – but we’ll focus on the business value of those tests first. I hope to help you to combine a critical conceptual understanding of WHY we do performance testing at the same time you are learning HOW to do performance testing. All in one day!
You can learn more about the tutorial and register for the class here: Performance Testing: Critical Concepts and Skills. Oh yeah, I have a couple other sessions also at STPCON this Fall, along with other great presenters on performance. Check out 302: Early Performance Testing and 504: Putting the Test Back into DevOps sessions. Hope to see you there!
