When a new Software Testing Project starts, it is common knowledge that planning and managing the project effectively is key to its success. What could ever go wrong? Don’t you agree that Software Testing in all its flavours and forms is an investigation, conducted to provide stakeholders with information about the quality of the software product or service-under-test? Moreover, that Software Testing also can provide an objective, independent view of the software to allow the business to appreciate and understand the risks of software implementation? No? In this presentation, Mieke takes you on a Performance Testing Project voyage with the most surreal experience ever faced. What happened? Is there a mystery to be solved? Alternatively, maybe a conspiracy? Join this presentation to find out what happened and to anticipate the unexpected, maybe in one of your future projects!
