Session Name: Smarter, Better, Faster, Stronger - Testing at Scale
Performance testing is hard. The tools are difficult to use, tests difficult to write, environments impossible to maintain, and ability to test realistic scenarios and gather “real” usage data limited. This talk aims to introduce to concept of “simulation testing” frameworks - frameworks that combine the throughput of load testing, realism of E2E frameworks, data generation and reporting of data science frameworks, and developer experience of modern webdev tooling - through one engineer’s journey of building one over the past three years with open source MIT framework Hedra (Greek plural for the face of a solid).
