With modern developer workflows come quicker deployments, faster time-to-market, and the fully integrated devops experience. In an ideal scenario, developers can change code and push it to some kind of repository, where it is automatically built, tested and rolled out to some testing or even production environments. The question is: can you still make sure performance holds up with every change before the customer tries the new features? How can you do performance testing as early in the development lifecycle as possible? This talk will showcase an example scenario on how you can enhance your existing ci-pipelines with automated performance tests through all development stages and discuss implications. The presentation will cover easy-to-use open source tooling in a live demo.
