^3E8B19FA3ABE8D384000FA6504E34F0893362F8D6461EA530C^pimgpsh_fullsize_distr

World Conference Next Generation Testing 2017 will be happening in Bangalore on 20 – 21 July 2017, with focus on Technical Sessions featuring over 25+ Presentation exploring the depth and breadth of Software Testing. The Summit will be a key meeting place for Test Professionals and Executives from leading IT organizations globally .

Workshop Abstract

Course Description:
This course is designed to introduce Queuing Theory & its applications for evaluating the system performance during Performance Testing. This course provides a strong foundation on how to use mathematical principles to improve your performance tests & accelerate problem analysis in strategic manner.

This course will bring in a practical view of how to use operational principles of Queuing theory to engineer system performance evaluation. Though there are several sources available about the operational laws, but the engineering thought process about how to practically apply them for solving some of the key performance testing challenges is always missing. This course is an attempt to teach mathematical principles for non-mathematicians, through a simple & practical way. Hence, the course is designed carefully with many practical case studies to help Performance Testers to apply the mathematical laws to address day to day challenges in performance testing projects.

This course will serve as the foundation course on Queuing Theory for specializing in advanced areas like performance modelling or capacity sizing activities. At the end of this course, Performance Testers will understand how much mathematics is required / involved behind performance problem analysis & how to apply them in the projects.

In nutshell, this is a tool agnostic & domain agnostic course which deals with concepts & mathematical principles of Queuing Theory that can be applied for system performance evaluation during Performance Testing & for Performance Modelling.

Course Outline:
Introduction to Queuing Theory & its Importance for Performance Testing
Operational Laws
How to practically apply & solve Performance testing challenges mathematically
How to building a simple model – Practice session
Practical Case Studies
Assessment

Course Objective:
To teach queuing theory from the basics, particularly simple fundamental mathematical principles which can be applied by Performance Testers to validate the NFRs, validate performance tests, validate the workload used for performance testing, validate the bottleneck area, quantify scalability issues, etc. This course will aid in providing the fundamentals for application capacity sizing & performance modelling activities.

Target Audience:
Performance Testers, Performance Test Leads & Architects, Performance Engineers

Prerequisites:
Should have atleast 2 years of experience in web application performance testing using any commercial or Open source tools like HP LoadRunner, JMeter ,etc.

Blockchain

12 Jun

Is blockchain technology the new internet?
The blockchain is an undeniably ingenious invention – the brainchild of a person or group of people known by the pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto. But since then, it has evolved into something greater, and the main question every single person is asking is: What is Blockchain?
By allowing digital information to be distributed but not copied, blockchain technology created the backbone of a new type of internet. Originally devised for the digital currency, Bitcoin, the tech community is now finding other potential uses for the technology.
Bitcoin has been called “digital gold,” and for a good reason. To date, the total value of the currency is close to $9 billion US. And blockchains can make other types of digital value. Like the internet (or your car), you don’t need to know how the blockchain works to use it. However, having a basic knowledge of this new technology shows why it’s considered revolutionary. So, we hope you enjoy this, what is Blockchain guide.

^5298CCCC41C650D5F7A176160FC00AF0D40D27FE91A4965E55^pimgpsh_fullsize_distr
Who will use the blockchain?
As web infrastructure, you don’t need to know about the blockchain for it to be useful in your life.
Currently, finance offers the strongest use cases for the technology. International remittances, for instance. The World Bank estimates that over $430 billion US in money transfers were sent in 2015. And at the moment there is a high demand for blockchain developers.
The blockchain potentially cuts out the middleman for these types of transactions. Personal computing became accessible to the general public with the invention of the Graphical User Interface (GUI), which took the form of a “desktop”. Similarly, the most common GUI devised for the blockchain are the so-called “wallet” applications, which people use to buy things with Bitcoin, and store it along with other cryptocurrencies.
Transactions online are closely connected to the processes of identity verification. It is easy to imagine that wallet apps will transform in the coming years to include other types of identity management.
