Workshop: Introduction to Performance and Load Testing with k6
Have you ever wondered how to get started with performance testing? Or do you know the basics of performance testing but need to know what tools to use? If you answered yes, then this workshop is for you.
This workshop will be broken down into two main areas. Theory and hands-on. During the theory part, you will learn the importance of performance testing, the difference between frontend and backend performance, load tests and performance tests in general, and an overview of the load testing process.
During the hands-on part, you will learn about k6, a tool that provides the best developer experience in performance testing. Since this is a hands-on workshop, it’s recommended to have k6 installed on your machines. For Mac users, it is recommended to get the latest version of Homebrew.
