29.6.2021 [Online] Performance testing: from zero to hero with k6 & Azure with Jose


Hi everyone

We meet again in the evening to get to know performance testing better together with Jose Luis Latorre Millas.

Performance testing: from zero to hero with k6 & Azure

Now that Azure DevOps load testing has been deprecated, and the Visual Studio load testing features will not be continued in further versions, it is more important than ever to find a suitable alternative.

In this session, I will explain why performance testing is important and go over the dos and don`ts.

I will dive into building performance tests with k6, which is open source and used by various prominent players like Microsoft or Amazon. We will explore why k6 is one of the best options in the market and look at its painless integration with Azure DevOps.

In this talk, we will start at the basics and dive deep by implementing a full-fledged performance test that checks a cloud web & service and verifies its compliance versus some SLAs.
