Performance Testing

Thе course is designed to teach QAs in tutorial format how to plan and conduct a performance test.


Nowadays, even accomplishing your project with best quality in the term of functionality may not be enough to cover the users’ expectations. Why is that? Omitting important characteristics of non-functional aspects, like for example the performance, may be crucial for the overall success of your project. Participating in the ‘Performance Testing Course’ will help you to understand why it is so important to have good quality in that area. It will help you to learn what exactly performance testing is and how you can perform it as part of your test strategy. Even more, a real practical examples and exercises will be held in the area, that will help you to build real-life industry-standard performance and load testing infrastructure on your own local machine.

The course is designed to teach QAs and Software Developers in tutorial format how to plan and conduct performance testing. The objectives are to define processes, tools, issues, and challenges for performance testing. At the end of the course, all attendees will have practical experience in planning and performing performance/load tests and to be able to analyze and measure the performance of any website or web-based server.

Nikolay Avramov

Software Engineer at Automate the Planet

Developer in Test at Automate The Planet. For the past 8 years, he worked as a Quality Assurance Engineer in Telerik (later acquired by Progress software). He started his career in the field from ground zero- from taking part of the Telerik Academy to becoming a Principal QA Engineer/Ninja that is in the heart of any innovation or automation initiative. Through his work he has developed, and integrated multiple custom frameworks and tools used across the entire company. To name a few- a custom Load and Performance Testing Framework; System Testing Framework; Web Service Testing Framework; Visual Verification Framework; and many other productivity tools that assured the highest quality of all web and business assets of the company. He found his true passion in Automation while looking for a ‘weapon’ to fight the boring, non-productive daily tasks that a QA faces. By reducing the manual repeatable jobs, he believes that we can make the world a better place, full of happy and productive people that are ready to tackle the next challenging task, instead of the next pile of test scenarios to cover by hand. He is a passionate technology geek and automation specialist that strives to implement optimizations and achieve high-quality standards in any aspect of life.
