Open Source Test Automation to the Rescue - Performance Testing in CI/CD

Apr 12, 2018 · Helsinki, Finland

Join us for our first meetup!

Continuous Integration and delivery have rapidly become the de facto standard in software development processes. While functional and unit testing have proved relatively easy to integrate into these processes, performance testing has typically raised more challenges.

When organizations use CI/CD methodologies, they are able to shorten time to release, while getting more quality builds for every commit. When you add continuous performance testing into the mix, you save time for developers, engineers and testers, while greatly reducing performance risks when adding a new feature, or fixing a bug. In this talk, we will examine key approaches to integrating performance testing into Continuous Delivery workflows, including how to overcome the key challenges of each method.

Ultimately, a true continuous delivery process relies upon the actualization of fully automated, configuration driven and version-based workflows, and we will show you how to evolve your CI system to facilitate this.

Taurus is an open source test automation tool designed for efficient use by developers, and helps to overcome numerous testing challenges. Andrey Pokhilko, well-known in the open source testing community for being the founder of and creator of the Taurus project, will share why Taurus was created, and the problems it helps to solve, He will also show how it works to simplify and enhance several leading open source testing tools, including Apache JMeter, Gatling, Selenium, and more. Finally, he will show how to use those same scripts for automated testing with thresholds and alerts, and how to scale your testing and integrate it with CI Tools like Jenkins.

Andrey will examine how to:

- Build a Taurus script from the ground up
- Integrate with CI tools like Jenkins to test performance with every build
- Analyze comprehensive performance test results in real-time
- Run tests locally and scale to the cloud with the same scripts for enterprise-grade testing
