Our Talks:

Continuous performance: load testing for developers with Gatling

Performance testing is traditionally a task for specialists that takes place at the very end of the software delivery life cycle. But how does this fit in with a DevOps way of working, where continuous feedback is one of the key points? It doesn't. 

In a world where scalability and performance are just as important as delivering new features, you need to embed performance testing in your daily development workflow: it needs to become a natural part of development. And this is where Gatling comes in: an open source load testing framework based on Scala, Akka and Netty.

In this session, you will learn how to use Gatling to incorporate performance testing in development and how to provide your team with continuous feedback on your application's performance.Subjects include an introduction to Gatling, automated recording and processing of performance tests with the Gatling Scala DSL and integration with Jenkins for automated execution, bench marking and reporting of load tests.

Dependency inversion principle i.e. frameworks considered harmful

The Javascript ecosystem is evolving at an incredible pace. Using new great libraries is fun, but we suffer from dependency hell. A real-world product easily depends on thousands of node modules, many of debatable quality. It's hard to make a long term commitment to any framework. And yet, we're supposed to write code that should last longer than 6 months. Fortunately, good old software engineering principles shed light on how to build a well decoupled, easily maintainable product. I will talk about my recent experience, lessons learned and an unpopular choice that paid back surprisingly well.
