Continuous Performance Testing (EXTENDED SESSION)


Modern practices for software design, development, deployment and operations emphasize the importance of bringing all disciplines together into a fantasmagorical system of systemized automation. Yet, no matter how many combinations of cool tools and hip scripts you pull together when it comes to performance there are some critical techniques that can help to amplify the value and visibility of your solution. This introductory workshop will help you to establish the foundation for continuous performance automation; the core concepts for automating performance, prioritizing business relevance, upgrading performance processes, establishing clear communication pathways and how to transition from older, pre-existing methodologies. Attendees will be invited to participate in small group exercises as a means to practice the techniques.

Session Takeaways:

  • Essential ingredients required to get your performance testing integrated with continuous integration and delivery
  • Hands-on experience with configuring a CI solution with an industry-standard load testing tool
  • Concepts to extend your performance testing upstream and downstream across the development lifecycle
