Performance Engineering and Load Testing at CMG\'10
This year there is a separate subject area for Load Testing at CMG'10 http://www.cmg.org/conference/cmg2010/ (held December 6-10 in Orlando, Florida) in addition to the Performance Engineering subject area. The number of performance testing and performance engineering sessions significantly increased. Of course, there are a lot of excellent sessions in traditionally strong CMG areas such as capacity planning, monitoring, performance analysis, and modeling.
Two Distinguished Speakers are talking about performance testing: Scott Barber, CTO of PerfTestPlus and Imad Mouline, CTO of Gomez. They also participate in the panel: Do we need Load Testing 2.0? Peter Johnson is doing a Load Testing CMG-T class. So it makes even more sense for performance testers and performance engineers to attend. See the agenda http://www.cmg.org/cgi-bin/agenda_2010.pl for details.
Conference proceedings up to 2007 are open for public ttp://www.cmg.org/proceedings/.
Re: Performance Engineering and Load Testing at CMG\'10
Wish we had an event here in Oz with a focus (or at least substantial component(s)) on Performance/Load Testing and the practices/models around that.
It seems to me it's all too often treated as related happenstance rather than a subject/discipline in it's own right.
Glad to see it has some direction here.
