A developer's guide to load testing

London User Group - Tuesday 9th June 2009, 18:30-20:00

Here are the details of the June 2009 London User Group.

  • Title : A developer's guide to load testing
  • Summary : Load testing is an often forgotten and seemingly difficult task that many people shy away from doing. It doesn't have to be this way though, with a basic level of load testing often enough to give you confidence that you've satisfied your non-functional requirements around performance and scalability. This session will look at load testing a website from a developers perspective. We'll look at the differences between load testing, stress testing and soak testing along with a hands-on demonstration of an open source load testing tool that you can use to get started. If you're building websites in Java, .NET, PHP or indeed any other programming language, this session will show you how easy it is to load test your website.
