Can anyone recommend an online testing site for determining one’s competency in software performance testing, agnostic of the tool used?

I'm not sure what happened to the initial post promoting IoT (Internet of Things) presentation by Oracle Middleware Solutions this evening.  Guess we weren't successful promoting it here on Google+ or perhaps I some how did this in my personal profile.  I'm no expert on this site.  Regardless, it was a great presentation.  Lots of facts and slides pertaining to the use of embedded java within the borders of the devices and home gateways with a live demonstration.  Great turnout for our second event of the year.  We are going to need a bigger room soon.  Here are some photos to commemorate the evening.

Java and the Internet of Things

When
Wednesday, March 19, 2014  at 5:30 – 7:00 PM EST

Where
University of Richmond, Jepson Hall, Richmond VA

Session Abstract
It is said that there will be 20 to 50 billion connected devices by 2020, generating US$14.4 trillion in value. However, the IoT value chain is highly fragmented and complex, especially when it involves edge devices. Machine-to-machine development can be complex, and current options are closed and monolithic. We need new value business models and seamless device-to-data-center platforms to truly enable the "Internet of Things".  Java enables an open, standards-based platform to deploy highly integrated, end-to-end, device-to-data-center solutions.  As the demand for smart, connected products grows, there is a huge opportunity for Java developers.

In this presentation, Sharada Achanta, VP of Product Management for Oracle Fusion Middleware, will discuss latest development on Java for IoT, including what's new in Java 8 and Oracle Event Processing for Embedded Java, as well as example use cases where there is a convergence of IoT, Big Data/Fast Data and Cloud.

Presenter
Sharada Achanta Vice President, Product Management, Oracle Fusion Middleware, North America at Oracle and previous CEO and Founder at MarketFeat has a 20 year track record of delivering extraordinary results in enterprise software marketing and engineering, spanning go-to-market initiatives & complete product /marketing lifecycles.  She has expertise in enterprise and SMB software applications, platforms, tools, Internet/e-commerce, search, appliances, services, communication with press, analysts, IP, M&A, SCM/SRM, corporate, solution and vertical marketing, positioning, messaging, programs.  She is consistently recognized as an outstanding performer, leader and team-player combining strategic thinking, creativity and a collaborative work style with execution and measurable results at every job, every level and every organization.
