Load & Performance: Basic practical principles

Load & performance belong to the top ten list of most frightening words in software development especially when it comes to the point of sale of your product at times of extremely competitive market. One thing that is really frightening is the word… STRESS (doesn’t it give you the shivers just hearing it?). This tutorial will get you acquainted with the terms in subject and will contribute to your understanding of the whole desired process stages from Sales meetings through Design and architecture, Ways of implementation, Testing aspects and finally presenting results and reports. A part of the process you’ll be advised about is ways to be aligned with your customer’s expectations, which means that you’ll need to know and control the required lingo of the load profession, whether you’re a sales person, developer or test engineer (e.g. ‘usage & traffic model’, ‘throughput’ etc’). You’ll be exposed to design and architecture solutions along with special guidelines for code writing and implementation. The load test engineers will understand better what the required information to initiate load & performance is; what to search for and how to improve their testing coverage, how & what to report and present in order to give an added value to those who make the decisions.

This practice is focused on complex systems projects, delivered to telecommunication companies under strict rules and stiff exit criteria elements, and in tense delivery timelines.
