PerfGuild 2019


I’m Joe, the host of GuildConferences, and I want to let you know about the 2nd Annual PerfGuild, an online conference, and community dedicated to helping you succeed with your performance and site reliability testing.

I’d love for you to join us April 8-9, and here’s why.

Why Don’t More Folks do Performance Testing?

Unfortunately, not many software engineering organizations are familiar with the needs of performance testing, or even have the expertise to do it.

Even worse, like most other shift-left testing efforts, hardly anyone is attempting to add this activity early enough in his or her software development life cycle.

Lack of Performance Testing Training

One major roadblock that prevents teams from successfully executing performance testing is a lack of training and education. 

Sometimes, just knowing where to start can be a challenge.

That’s why I created PerfGuild.

Best Performance Testing ROI

Plus—since no travel is required, you’ll save a bunch of money (and time) on air fare, hotels, meal expenses and more, making PerfGuild an excellent ROI of your training dollars.

But don’t take my word for it; listen to what one of our previous PerfGuild members had to say:

“This has been probably the best ‘training money’ I have ever spent in my 18 years with Deere and 15 years with the DoD” ~ Randy Stevenson, PerfGuild 2017

Is Performance Testing Needed?

I’ve heard from a few folks who’ve told me that performance testing is not needed because they can simply auto scale their application at runtime.

But not all performance issues and can be solved by throwing more resources at it.

Sadly, many companies realize this too late—sometimes with dire consequences like lost revenue, lost customers, and lost confidence in their software.

I think you can do better.
