Intechnica recently sponsored the British Computer Society’s Special Interest Group in Software Testing (SIGiST) summer conference in London. The SIGiST is a great place to come and listen to the country’s top software testers talk about methodologies, tools, new technology and experiences, as well as to meet others in the world of testing.
One of the speakers for this summer’s SIGiST conference was Intechnica’s own Richard Bishop, who contributes blog posts for this site. Richard spoke about Intechnica’s findings and observations from the use of cloud platforms in performance testing (we use TrafficSpike, based on Facilita Forecast, to generate load from the cloud for tests, as well as developing and migrating applications for and to the cloud).

The presentation was well received, gaining praise on Twitter via the #SIGiST hashtag.
This webinar, from 6th March 2012, was hosted by Intechnica‘s Technical Director, Andy Still. Andy talked about the key principles of designing and migrating applications to the cloud. This includes scaling out, taking new and imaginative approaches to data storage, making full use of the wide range of products and services on offer from cloud providers (beyond hosting), and exploring the many flavours of hybrid solution which can mean all types of business can leverage the benefits of the cloud.
Andy has architected and built a number of cloud-based applications, specialising in highly scalable, high-performance, business critical applications.
If you’re planning or considering moving to the cloud in 2012 then this webinar is essential viewing.
