Post-WOPR Tutorials Announcement
Ross Collard is conducting his Performance Testing workshop in Redmond, WA on Monday through Wednesday, June 19-21. It will be followed by a one-day workshop on Robustness Testing on Thursday, June 22. Both workshops will have a mix of Google, Microsoft and other participants.
These workshops have been widely acclaimed. This is a typical example of participant's feedback (from a Microsoft test engineer who attended a workshop hosted by Google in April, 2006):
I'd like to first say that the workshop was excellent! And my colleagues concurred that was outstanding too. I personally believe that what makes it so good is the learning by experience approach. The books that were included provide a case that touches on a lot of the key issues and areas I face on a daily basis. I believe that it is the best training that I've received on performance testing, and the fact that it wasn't a specific-tool-based workshop makes the test strategy and analysis knowledge I gained applicable across projects. The context-driven approach also allowed me to see how an approach to creating and implementing a performance test strategy can change as my situation changes. Though the lectures deliberately were minimal to allow more time for learning-by-doing, I did receive a great value of knowledge and information from them as well. In particular, the citations that Ross made from his own experience with different projects allowed me to relate the information to my experience, and this enhanced my learning ability the lectures.
The cost is $695 per person (relatively cheap) for the three-day Performance Testing workshop, and $250 for the Robustness Testing workshop (cheap too)..Contact Ross directly at email@example.com or 212 941-5962.

Re: Post-WOPR Tutorials Announcement
Just to clarify that this is not the WOPR event but an overflow from the Tutorials that were given just after the WOPR event in April at Google.
I'll be there as well to help Ross out with the tutorial.
Thanks AJ for the announcement!
