 Vivit Worldwide has just kicked off their Special Interest Group (SIG) 2018 speaker series. This monthly series will focus on sharing insights between members and truly discover best practices and tips. These sessions are your opportunity to hear from your peers and get their expert advice on the monthly topic.

The January session focused on proven practices within Quality and Testing. The first presenter was Petar Puskarich, AVP Performance Engineering, Bank of America and he discussed Performance Engineering Personnel Mining.

His main focus was on finding the best candidate for your performance engineering position. He does a deep dive into what to look for in a new candidate, where to find them, what questions to ask to identify the right candidate and how to avoid the wrong ones. Petar points out that a qualified candidate will offer more than technical acuity, they need to also have personal skills. Remember the intangible qualities are just as important as the technical skills.

Petar also discusses why asking open-ended questions is vital to weeding out the top candidate. It is also important to consider if the candidate is pushing back on any of the questions. If you listen carefully you might actually learn from them as well.

What are Digital Experiences?

The second presenter was Jonathon Wright, Digital Therapist with Digital Assured who shared his thoughts on “What are Digital Experiences within the Digital Performance Lifecycle”. During his session he defined what a digital experience is and why it is so important to the Digital Performance Lifecycle.

He demonstrates how your organization can embrace minimum viable performance so that with your continuous performance capabilities, you can have an MVP you can run with every check-in. This capability allows you to get quick initial feedback from wherever you are in the process.

 Jonathon also discusses the power of ChatOps in your Digital Performance Lifecycle with a demonstration of Curiosity visual integration processor.

 What is after version control?

The final presenter during the SIG hour was Stuart Moncrieff, Web Performance Evangelist, MyLoadTest.com. He shared his insights on “What’s next after version control?” As he points out, software-based version control has been available since the1970s, but it is only in the past few years that version control has been available for performance testing tools. Because of this revelation, Start dives into other standard development practices performance testers may have been missing out on.

Don’t miss out on one moment of this exciting session—which is now available on-demand.
