Performance & Software Testing Resources
When PerfTestPlus staff isn't busy delivering services to clients, we can often be found writing papers, presenting or collaborating with our friends and alliances to increase our skills, knowledge and make the lessons we've learned from our experiences publicly available. Unlike many other services organizations, PerfTestPlus doesn't hide behind "trade secrecy", we speak, write and publish papers. This section of our web site has exactly one purpose; to be a permanent, publicly available archive of our articles, presentations, links and other resources.
Check back often, we are continually adding new material.
Dozens of articles, papers, and books authored by PerfTestPlus staff. Each contains information that we believe is valuable and applicable to it's readers. Best of all, these papers are all free!
Being able to do a thing is a far cry from being able to explain it in writing. Explaining a task in writing requires that the author have a deep understanding of every step of the process and often leads the author to significantly enhance their own understanding of the task. This is one reason why PerfTestPlus encourages their employees to publish their best ideas.
Here you can find the slides for every public presentation every delivered by a member of the PerfTestPlus team. If you've ever seen a PerfTestPlus team member give a presentation at a conference, you'll find the slides (or an updated version thereof) here.
Unlike an academic setting, industry doesn't have a formal peer review process for new ideas. The closest things we have are industry conferences. PerfTestPlus encourages it's employees to present their innovations at conferences as an opportunity to have their innovations critiqued by others.
