Hola amigos I am el Señor Performo!
I am a performance tester. I have been working around the testing scene for about 10 years now. All done while crossing the border from Mexico to many cities in the gringo country, the US most of times.
I have not crossed only one border. I have been lucky enough to cook the enchilada in other countries as well. Just haven’t visited them as often as I do it with my amigos gringos.
Before someone gets stressed. I crossed totally legally!
As a consultant I have had the opportunity to work on performance testing projects on some of the largest companies you can imagine and others not so large, but all of them with lots and lots of fun testing the performance of their IT solutions.
From all of those came lots and lots of stories and learning experiences!
Here, I am going to try to share all of those stories. I will try to tell you many ‘once upon a time’s so that you can live like I did the experiences. Several of them were painful. But the most importante thing that they left me was the learning. Which I will try my best to share with you in order to get to be a better tester. Specifically a performance one. But I will jump here and there with lessons all over the place.
At times I will go over topics that relate to other areas. I have been fortunate enough to not only play around performance testing. I will tell you about some of the other crazy areas where I have played like general software testing, project management, development, etc. And who knows if there is a chance maybe some finance, fitness and cooking. Who can say no to some new taco recipes?
To share the knowledge I will use many crazy examples. My mind is full with funny ideas, pop references, serious examples, my Mexican family and friends, burritos, enchiladas and of course every possible type of taco.
As you will notice as well, I love to draw mustaches and glasses everywhere. Who doesn’t? I hope as well you like my crayon like drawings, mustached pictures and silliness.
Trust me ese! There are a lot of experience and stories under my hat. OK, sombrero pues.
Please if you are interested, share your doubts and I may be able to find a story to explain and respond to those doubts.
But for now, lets start playing.
