Oh, do we love getting into the details of performance testing. We love finding out what little bit of code, what configuration setting, what hardware-issue-we-can-blame-on-the-IT-guys is causing our performance bottleneck.
Check out this webinar where we describe the most common patterns to follow when looking at results. We cover some other tips and tricks you can do to get the most out of your load testing results!
Lots of goodies in this release! 🎉
We are working towards a 1.0 release of k6, and as part of this release we've also published our roadmap for 2018 in the Github wiki. We welcome comments and discussion relating to the roadmap, both in the corresponding issues as well as in Slack.
Like any developers, we like to think we know our customers and our ultimate users. The tricky part: our customers are developers like us. So when we see developer research, we think, “Can this be true? Does this really reflect our customers?”
Many people have started using k6 to test their web services and APIs, but not all are aware of the different results output options offered by k6. This article shows how simple it is to use Grafana to visualise your k6 test results.
We’re all about performance testing here, and we love to empower developers to intelligently build apps with performance in mind. But performance testing isn’t enough: it works hand-in-hand with performance monitoring. Here’s how.
You’re committed to load testing because you’re convinced of its benefits. But are you load testing both consistently and continuously?
Both are important, and both deliver results. Those results not only optimize your app’s performance - but can catch job-threatening performance issues early in development. Let’s talk about them individually.
We might all be breathing a sigh of relief. We survived the holiday shopping season, and what most of us consider the peak ecommerce season.
Don’t believe it. We’re all professionals, and there’s no time to rest, it turns out. Our reminder: keep load testing because ecommerce continues to increase.
How do you set your performance metrics for your personal performance reviews? What do other developers do? Turns out, most prefer two performance-related metrics.
Every organization, every team, is a little bit different. Your personal job performance metrics might be different from your colleague’s, or your friend’s at another company.
