Reports from the Software Test & Performance Conference, going on right now in Cambridge, Mass., are that the three-day event is packed. Not just with technical classes, but also with attendees. STPCon sold out of its full event passes a couple of week ago and then all the remaining tutorials-only seats went too. (The exhibition hall also filled up. We had inquiries from more test/QA companies that wanted to demo their software at STPCon, but there was no more space to put them.)

Unfortunately, I didn’t make it out to STPCon this week. Between shipping the Fall 2006 issue of Eclipse Review to the printer, and finishing up a SOA supplement for the Dec. 1 issue of SD Times, it was too hard to get out of the office. Bummer. STPCon is our biggest event at BZ Media, and it’s always a great experience. Plus, Rex Black is a marvelous keynote speaker.

We’ll be announcing the dates and location for next year’s Software Test & Performance Conference shortly.
