WOPR22 Brainstorm: Takeaways

At the end of WOPR22, we asked the group for their takeaways. Here is the list that generated, with attribution when we could remember who said it. 1. “We need to think about Performance Testing (in terms) other than just load testing.” – Andy Hohenner 2. “Our first performance test for each build was a […]

WOPR22 Brainstorm: Illusion of Reality

Our last brainstorming exercise was an examination of the ways in which we acknowledge our performance model is likely to be inaccurate, compared to reality. Since much of performance testing centers on “realistic” simulation, and iterative development forces us to test faster with less information, it was instructive to review how we approach simulation fidelity. […]

WOPR22 Brainstorm: Optimizations

During WOPR22, we spend a few minutes before lunch collecting systems-based (as opposed to code) optimizations that the group had used in the past. This was time- and hunger-bound. This is not an exhaustive or ranked list, and does not include enough information to use these as heuristics. It might¬†be a source of ideas. This […]
