Eric Proegler has worked in testing for 15 years, and specialized in performance and reliability testing for 12. I work for Mentora Group, a national testing consultancy, from my home in Mountain View, California.
I design and conducts experiments that use synthetic load to help customers assess and reduce risk, validate architecture and engineering, and evaluate compliance with non-functional systems requirements. I test in a wide variety of contexts, using tools appropriate to the job at hand. Some of the applications I’ve tested recently include Oracle E-Business ERP systems, a hospital’s provider portal, a large scale “second-screen” mobile app, a large B2B EDI Translation clearing house, a custom SaaS application, and e-Commerce web sites.
I’m an organizer for WOPR, the Workshop on Performance and Reliability, and a Community Advisory Board member for STPCon. I’ve presented and facilitated at CAST, WOPR, STPCon, and STiFS. I have recently started engaging with tester certification and testing standards to help our community best respond to these economic tactics.
In my free time, I spend time with my family, read, see a lot of stand-up comedy, seek out street food from all over, play video games, and follow professional basketball.
