XBOSoft ‏@XBOSoft  5h
@softwaretestpro #STPCon where to invest in quality? Listen to your users!

Jean Ann Harrison ‏@JA_Harrison  5h

“A strategy is not a plan, it is not a secret, it is not static” ~ @mtomlins #STPCon

Kendal Peiguss ‏@kendalpeiguss  6h
@sbarber I realized that @mtomlins was speaking at #stpcon at the same time as your webinar today. A performance testing Twitter mashup!

Seth Eliot ‏@setheliot  6h
#STPCon IMO best model is team values perf (across roles).  Embed perf eng.  Dev and Test use CI/CTest to continuously assure perf is good

Seth Eliot ‏@setheliot  6h
#stpcon @mtomlins “Performance Pairing” – now we’re talking.  Me: add dev to design for it, tester test for it, plus CI and CTest

Jean Ann Harrison ‏@JA_Harrison  7h
#STPCon @mtomlins “why don’t functional #automation # testers include #timing to their own tests? No one wanted the info” #noawarenessofperf

#STPCon SDET = Software Development Engineer in Test, an engineer that knows coding and testing

Seth Eliot ‏@setheliot  7h
#STPCon @mtomlins Scripting (coding) only 1 part of the job – analysis, remediation, etc are important – me:testers need data science

Paul Grizzaffi ‏@pgrizzaffi  7h
@mtomlins – “performance is everybody’s business” #STPCon

Seth Eliot ‏@setheliot  7h
#STPCon @mtomlins question from me: If a strategy is not a plan, and hope is not a strategy then it is possible that hope is a plan?

Jean Ann Harrison ‏@JA_Harrison  7h
#STPCon @mtomlins   #performance strategy. Seems simple yet companies still don’t consider #performance strategies

Mike Lyles ‏@mikelyles  7h
Perf Strategies with @mtomlins at #STPCon :1-A strategy is not a plan, 2-A strategy is not a secret, 3-A strategy is not static

Brad Johnson ‏@bradjohnsonsv  7h
@setheliot @lindybrandon @JA_Harrison whatever we call it, it starts w/ us injecting ourselves (with facts and value). #STPCon

Seth Eliot ‏@setheliot  9h
#STPCon @bradjohnsonsv  Talking what happens in actual use?  Unexpected usage. – He’s talking TiP!

Brett Hinton ‏@hintbw  9h
#stpcon Contextualizing metrics needs to happen to help ward off incorrect conclusions- metrics w/o context are like a compass without a map

@mike_trites: “Metrics Need Context” #STPCon

Seth Eliot ‏@setheliot  9h
