Testing, is currently on Contract with McKesson a fortune 500
company. His experience includes thirteen years of experience in all
aspects of software testing from manual testing to leading test
teams. In addition to giving presentations on performance testing
for SQuAD (Software Quality Association of Denver), Ragan has twice
sat on the annual SQuAD software testing conference test automation
panel. This is Ragan's first presentation at Mercury User's Group.

Presentation: A Synopsis for Setting Performance Requirements and Expectations

In nearly every Performance Project, the same questions comes up,
what is good performance? What will it take to make this faster?
Ragan has learned there is no silver bullet solution which applies
to every project. Through personal experience and a few rules of
thumb, Ragan has learned how to work with project teams to set
requirements and expectations. Ragan will share these with the
Mercury User's Group audience.
