I spend a lot of time talking about the basics of functional and performance testing. I actually somewhat enjoy it. Having studied the topics for so long, and made so many mistakes – it’s a pleasure helping people just getting into the domains get off on the right foot.
For a limited time – I’m not actually sure how long – a presentation I recorded on the Basics of Performance Testing is available for free replay. It covers the basic mistakes people make when performance testing, and then outlines some of the things that we do at Rational to help you get around those typical first time traps.
Eventually this recording will disappear – but for now, it’s available for your viewing pleasure.
