Performance Testing Strategy and Implementation

Jason Varland, Outcome Health

About the Topic

Your company​ ​is​ ​about ​ ​to ​ ​make ​ ​it ​ ​big ​ ​with ​ ​a ​ ​new ​ ​large ​ ​population ​ ​of ​ ​users​ ​and ​ ​you ​ ​are ​ ​tasked ​ ​with ensuring your​ ​products​ ​will ​ ​not ​ ​fail ​ ​under​ ​the ​ ​strain. ​ ​​ ​Where ​ ​do ​ ​you ​ ​start? ​ ​​ ​When ​ ​is​ ​it ​ ​good ​ ​enough?

It ​ ​is​ ​an ​ ​exciting ​ ​time ​ ​to ​ ​be ​ ​part ​ ​of ​ ​a ​ ​company​ ​that ​ ​has​ ​proven ​ ​its​ ​products​ ​to ​ ​be ​ ​desired. ​ ​​ ​It ​ ​has​ ​taken ​ ​a ​ ​lot of ​ ​hard ​ ​work​ ​to ​ ​get ​ ​the ​ ​products​ ​to ​ ​that ​ ​point. ​ ​​ ​Most ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​time ​ ​those ​ ​products​ ​are ​ ​built ​ ​to ​ ​satisfy​ ​features and ​ ​speed ​ ​of ​ ​delivery​ ​rather​ ​than ​ ​scale. ​ ​​ ​How ​ ​do ​ ​you ​ ​as​ ​QA ​ ​begin ​ ​to ​ ​turn ​ ​attention ​ ​to ​ ​scale? ​ ​​ ​What ​ ​areas should ​ ​be ​ ​the ​ ​focus? ​ ​​ ​What ​ ​should ​ ​you ​ ​not ​ ​care ​ ​about? ​ ​​ ​What ​ ​are ​ ​the ​ ​typical ​ ​costs? ​ ​​ ​How ​ ​do ​ ​you ​ ​keep ​ ​it going?

Jason ​ ​Varland, ​ ​QA ​ ​Manager​ ​at ​ ​Outcome ​ ​Health ​ ​will ​ ​share ​ ​his​ ​experience ​ ​on ​ ​developing, ​ ​implementing, and ​ ​maintaining ​ ​an ​ ​effective ​ ​performance ​ ​testing ​ ​strategy. ​ ​​ ​Learn ​ ​how ​ ​he ​ ​was​ ​able ​ ​to ​ ​learn ​ ​performance testing, ​ ​learn ​ ​from​ ​mistakes, ​ ​gain ​ ​support ​ ​from​ ​leadership, ​ ​and ​ ​successfully​ ​help ​ ​a ​ ​product ​ ​onboard millions​ ​of ​ ​users.

Key Learning Objectives
  • Understanding ​ ​the ​ ​objectives​ ​of ​ ​performance ​ ​testing
  • Effective ​ ​performance ​ ​testing
  • Developing ​ ​and ​ ​Implementing ​ ​a ​ ​performance ​ ​testing ​ ​plan
