Continuous Performance Testing: A Tale of Two Worlds
Once upon a time, in a land far away, application performance was a differentiator in the market. But in today's competitive landscape, having a highly responsive and scalable application is a basic expectation. Performance no longer lives on the fringe of the quality world, and it is becoming more common for organizations to include performance testing as part of their CI/CD pipelines. However, engineers are faced with a common dilemma: Do they implement small and simple performance tests that may not be very realistic but are fast and reliable in the build pipeline, or do they write comprehensive, end-to-end performance tests that are representative of the real world but result in slower builds? Join Kaushal Dalvi as he discusses his journey to get closer to the answer to this and other performance testing questions. Discover the challenges and solutions around continuous performance testing, and learn how to strike the right balance so that you can design better performance tests for your pipelines. Don't miss the chance to hear how Kaushal and his team have been navigating performance testing in the worlds of monoliths versus microservices, UI versus API tests, on-premise solutions versus public cloud, mobile versus desktop, and proprietary versus open source tools.
