Be sure to check out this Test Talk podcast hosted by Joe Colantonio. Joe speaks with Robin Gustafsson, CTO of Load Impact, about lowering the barriers for performance testing, to make it much easier for developers to test early in the development cycle. Robin talks about k6, the open source load testing tool that was built to be "developer centric."
I've recently reviewed three State of DevOps reports from the past year, one from InterOp and two from Puppet-- the 2017 State of DevOps Report and the State of DevOps Market Segmentation Report. Here are a few excerpts and insights from these reports, particularly as they pertain to software performance testing as part of a DevOps environment.
Performance testing is an essential part of today's DevOps workflows. It requires the capability to run load tests both locally and in the cloud to address different users' needs at different stages of the software development cycle.
The DevOps methodology allows development and IT operations teams to significantly increase the speed and frequency of deployment of software. In the 2018 State of DevOps Report, 75% of respondents to the survey increased frequency of deployments. And, 79% of DevOps teams reported improved quality and performance of their software.
Performance testing tools that fit into DevOps workflows help teams to shorten the development cycle and deliver high performance software (websites, apps, and APIs) faster.
