Panel discussion about life, the universe and performance testing. We'll try to cover the following questions: • why should a non-specialist be great on performance; • who and why is looking for performance-testers; • what to do when you don't have non-functional requirements (and do you need to do anything at all); • what are the ways to test performance; • what are the instruments for load testing and how to work with them; • synthetics vs. the real-world load: how not to make production fall; • how to create the production conditions in a testing environment; • what to do with scalable systems; • latency and throughput: what should you know about it; • which application characteristics are to be monitored, what are the requirements (including functional, syscpu and others); • where to keep the results of performance testing and how to visualize them.
Also, you'll be able to ask tricky questions and see how the members of panel discussion try to get away with the answers.
