What you'll learn

  • Learn how load testing is being reinvented for DevOps


It’s now more important than ever that each new release delivers a positive user experience, but it’s hard to ensure this when legacy performance testing approaches are too late, too heavy, and too slow to give DevTest teams the instant performance insight they need on each incremental change.

Tim Koopmans explains how load testing is being reinvented for DevOps, covering where traditional load testing approaches fall short for Agile and DevOps, what’s needed to rapidly expose performance issues before they impact users, and new approaches to making load testing faster, simpler, and more realistic.

This session is sponsored by Tricentis.
