Launched in December 2008, BrowserMob set out to change the way performance and load testing is done – all using the cloud. Learn from the founder how he built a high performance testing product on top of dozens of cloud technologies, and how the operational support the cloud provided enabled the company to not only profit from day one, but to be acquired within a year and a half of its launch.
