Webinar: Automate Load Testing with GitLab CI

In the GitLab 2018 Global Developer Report it says:

"As we look at 2018 and beyond, IT organizations that successfully adopt continuous improvement practices and seamless automation across their software development lifecycle will have happier, more collaborative, and well-functioning teams who are better positioned to meet their goals and objectives."

60% report automating more of the software development lifecycle as a top priority.

Other key findings from the survey:

  • 61% agree that developers in their organization understand how their changes affect the performance of their application(s)
  • 92of respondents agree that open source tools are critical to software innovation
  • 90% of managers, compared to 84% of developers, agree that practicing Continuous Integration (CI) alleviates blockers in the development process.

Testing came out on top when respondents were asked where in the development process they encountered the most delays: 

From the report: Manual testing and a change of plans mid-process (often by non-technical stakeholders) cause headaches for developers. As one respondent summarized, “We need to plan better and automate more,” a sentiment that was echoed across multiple responses.

We can see from the above that automating the testing process as part of the CI pipeline is a critical area of improvement for development and DevOps teams. Performance testing is a key component of the overall testing process. Performance testing as part of your Continuous Integration process allows developers test early in the development cycle. This makes finding and fixing performance issues faster and more efficient.

Join our webinar where we'll cover the basics of performance testing and how to incorporate it into your automation pipeline using the GitLab Continuous Integration tool. Learn how to execute performance tests with our open source load testing toolk6 as part of your CI workflow.

Webinar: Load testing for Modern DevOps Teams with k6 and Load Impact Insights

If you're involved in software development and/or testing of websites, apps or APIs, don't miss this webinar on load testing with k6 and Load Impact Insights. k6 is our new, open source load generator, available for download on GitHub (https://github.com/loadimpact/k6).

k6 has been built from the ground up for use by today’s DevOps teams throughout the development cycle. Developers can use k6 early in the development cycle to load test as part of their standard Continuous Integration process.

With k6, you can run tests locally, behind the firewall (available now), and in the cloud on Load Impact's cloud infrastructure (coming soon). Test scenario scripts are created using ES6 JavaScript. This makes it easy to create test scripts without having to learn a new scripting language.

Load Impact Insights allows you to store and analyze your k6 load test results. Built-in algorithms help automate results analysis to quickly uncover performance issues. You can start a free trial of Load Impact Insights by clicking here.
