Load and Performance Testing is a neglected cousin of security testing. Both disciplines deal with technical requirements, are to a big extend not manual testable and require a detailed technical background. Therefore, organizations often gradually neglect both. However, I will give you now an overview how the former can be prepared and executed.

Not so many years ago organizations tried to fix bad user experience with investments in infrastructure. Hardware provider promised that brand-new CPUs, more RAM, and fast storage would fix the annoying performance hotspots. Obviously, this was just in rare cases a good advice. In this post, I will write about top performance hotspots and how speed is unlocking opportunities across all layers.
Over the past decade companies, large and small have started with the integration of load and performance testing into their development process. There are many good reasons for this evolution. In this post will outline why testing of performance requirements has become so popular.
Performance testing is meanwhile a fundamental step in many software development projects. Test early and repeat often is also true for load and performance testing. It's not a one-time shot and there are some pitfalls involved. In this post, I will outline the three most frequently used performance test varieties.
