What exactly is “Test and Attack” and how can you benefit from using it?
In 2012, the Olympics lost 1 out of every 10 tickets sold due to system crashes.

Just a Glitch
Knight Capital, a firm that specializes in executing trades for retail brokers, took $440m in cash losses Wednesday due to a faulty test of new trading software. This morning reports were calling it a trading “glitch”, which isn’t nearly as accurate as the term I’d use: “****ing disaster”
I worked with Geoff as a member of the Premier Support for Developers group. Geoff’s extensive knowledge in development and testing was an invaluable resource to the team and Microsoft.
Geoff is one of the sharpest individual I have had the opportunity to work with :). He is dedicated has a deep skillset and can isolate and test like no other.
Geoff is my expert in “all things Test” from discussions around assisting customers with automated testing to the best way to stress test an application to see “what app death looks like”.
I had the chance to work with Geoff on a fairly challenging test engagement that involved a huge number of technical and business requirements to create and measure a very complex set of scenarios.
I’d like to share with the community a few words on one of the world’s best Test Consultants. Geoff is a deeply skilled, deeply passionate, immensely enjoyable person to work with
