If you want to get the most realistic results for your performance tests, using real browsers is the way to go. But it’s not always easy to do this at scale. In our latest webinar, our Chief Evangelist Ophir Prusak revealed how to make this easy. He gave step-by-step instructions and a live demo on how to run performance tests with real browsers using Selenium WebDriver – with BlazeMeter and/or JMeter on its own. He covered how to: · Correlate actual browser-based user experience with your load tests
All about Continuous Testing, DevOps, JMeter, and more!
The application failed. A bug was found. What more do you need to know? If you’re running a load test and hoping to debug accordingly, the answer is “a lot!” Unfortunately, many load tests are conducted in ways that do not generate much (if any) actionable information apart from the main error. You need to know more. Here’s how to get it.
Tech Guru Timothy Fitz on making the jump to Continuous Deployment, the buzz around DevOps, and why GitHub has set back Software Departments by 5-10 years... We invited cloud blogger Ofir Nachmani to ask 5 key questions to Timothy Fitz - the man who coined and popularized Continuous Deployment. Here are the results:
There’s no getting around the fact that security is a major consideration for any website or app. Sure, if you’re sharing public information like weather forecasts or currency exchange rates, you can allow anonymous user access. But, in many cases, you’ll need to apply some sort of restricted access to sensitive or private data. This is more secure for your user...but much more of a headache for you!
Quick question: How does your web app perform with 100,000 concurrent users? If you can answer that, then one of three things must be true: 1. You’ve actually had 100,000 concurrent users on your application under live conditions (if so, we hope it went well!) 2. You’ve leveraged a performance testing tool like JMeter that simulates real browsers. 3. You’ve constructed an elaborate, expensive testing lab with thousands of testing boxes running real browsers

Continuous testing is a hot topic - and for a very good reason. Nearly 2,500 people signed up for yesterday’s webinar to learn how Continuous Testing will enable them to achieve shorter release times and superior software quality. Don’t worry if you missed this webinar - we recorded the entire session. Watch it now and learn: Why Continuous Testing is so important today How to integrate automated Continuous Testing into your Continuous Integration (CI) processes
Software development and testing has evolved a lot in recent years...
Here's a scary thought entering more and more heads of late: What if our Continuous Delivery implementation is destined to fail?
