Meet 4 SPEED!

Thu, 27 Sep 2012 4:30 PM


We will have 20% discount codes for Velocity Europe available to all members, plus we are raffling off a FREE pass, so be sure not to miss out on that.

This will be the first meetup for the Manchester Web Performance Group.

Mission Impossible – Effective performance evaluation as part of a CI approach
Join Channel 4 and Intechnica for an unashamedly technical exploration of performance assurance in a continuous integration (CI) environment. In their presentation, Mark Smith (QA Manager, C4) and Jeremy Gidlow (MD, Intechnica) will go into detail about the approach to performance assurance on a recent, major development project at C4, including the risks, challenges and outcomes. Then, they will lead what promises to be a rather heated debate aiming to define precisely what an approach to performance in CI should look like. Finishing with an overview of the planned CI-based approach to Phase 2 of the C4 project, which is due to start early 2013.

About the speakers:
Mark Smith joined Channel 4 as Head of QA early 2012; prior to this Mark was QA Manager at ASOS.com for over three years during a period of huge expansion and international growth.
Jeremy Gidlow is founder and MD of Intechnica, a consultancy specialising in performance troubleshooting and engineering, whose clients include Channel 4, ASOS, GSK, Nisa Retail, Swinton Insurance and Irish Life.
