Sure, front-end performance focus is great. But when your site surges in popularity—a foregone conclusion for us all, right?—web scale preparation can avoid a ton of grief. Think you can’t test your site with hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world without weeks of sleepless nights coding open source tools? This demo from Robert Castley, Solution Engineer and Technologist at Keynote, shows you how to design, run, and analyze a complete Web load test in 5 minutes, with time to spare for tea and biscuits.
