About me:
I’m a QA Architect for Vonage. I worked in Performance testing and test automation for a number of exciting startups for over 15yrs before doing my stint in site reliability engineering and finally landing in an architecture team. I’m exposed to a number of ideas from other disciplines I’d like to bring back to the test community.

  1. Why you shouldn’t be performance testing
    I spent a large part of my life performance testing, I love pushing services to the edge and a little beyond. I love the data, the tools, the graphs. The customer is important to me, sites should be fast and respondent. So why wouldn’t everyone be performance testing?? Vote to find out.

  2. You are doing browser testing wrong!
    Xpath - Wrong, CSS Selectors - Wrong,
    Page Objects, Object Repositories, Wrong and Wronger.
    Yet Another company offering Codelesss, or image based testing - Couldn’t be more wrong.
    Well What is the right way? Semantic testing automation…
    WTF no one even told me that was a thing. So vote here

  3. I still want to performance test, how do I automate that and add it to my pipeline.
    Adding performance tests to a pipeline is more than running jmeter. You need to orchestrate a test environment, implement monitoring and then decide go/no go scenarios and trends you would like to monitor.

  4. Oh no this startup actually caught on… now what??? How do we scale up performance 1000% yesterday.
    Some memories and experiences from when a start up actually caught on and we had to double server capacity every year. I would also like to cover topics on APM and observability.

  5. What does testing in production action mean?
    Everyone is talking about it but feels like not one is doing it. What is testing in production and how is it actually done successfully.
