Building a Comprehensive Performance Testing Strategy

We mainly imagine performance testing as an act of putting loads on our servers and measuring the response times. In the era were we have more emphasis on mobile apps and responsive web designs the front-end performance optimisations are equally important. In this talk, I want to address the challenge of building a comprehensive performance testing strategy keeping in mind both front-end and back-end considerations. I will demo how we measured front-end metrics in automated fashion. I will talk about basic concepts for front-end performance considerations and discuss some of the strategies which are must haves for a project. I will further talk about how to iteratively evolve and develop the performance strategy during the course of the project. We will also cover my journey in recent project and how good performance strategy helped us to improve our architectural design.
