Agile performance testing theme for 7th Workshop On Performance and Reliability.

Mentora Group, Inc., a leading application hosting and testing firm, announced today that Dan Downing will participate in the seventh Workshop On Performance and Reliability, a semi-annual event that brings together an invited group of expert software quality practitioners from around the world to expand the body of knowledge on performance testing.

The central question for this workshop is: How does agility manifest itself in the activity of performance testing? Participants will make informal presentations to spur discussion and experience-sharing, in a format that mirrors the successful Los Altos Workshop on Software Testing (LAWST) model.

Dan Downing, Vice President of Testing for Mentora, said, “It will be exciting to spend four days with recognized experts in application performance testing. While I will share my own stories in conducting Web load tests under time constraints, my main goal is to learn from others’ experience testing in agile environments.”

WOPR7 is sponsored by Transition Consulting Limited, a UK software testing consultancy and will be held in the UK at the Innovation Centre at the University of Exeter Streatham Campus, October 11 – 14. It will include a day-long tutorial on Rapid Software Testing taught by James Bach, recognized thought leader in agile testing and founder of Satisfice, Inc. WOPR6 was sponsored by Google in April 2006.
