Continuous Performance Testing: Myths and Realities
While development process is moving towards all things continuous, performance testing remains rather a gray area. Some continue to do it in the traditional pre-release fashion, some claim 100% automation and full integration into their continuous process. We have a full spectrum of opinions of what, when, and how should be done in regard to performance. The issue here is that context is usually not clearly specified - while context is the main factor here. Depending on context, the approach may (and probably should) be completely different. Full success in a simple (from the performance testing point of view) environment doesn't mean that you may easily replicate it in a difficult environment. The speaker will discuss the issues of making performance testing continuous in detail, illustrating them with personal experience when possible.
