Presented by:

Today’s agile testing teams require a solid strategy for building and executing test cases earlier in their sprints to obtain the fast feedback required for iterative development. Unfortunately, when it comes to performance testing, most organizations complete this practice at the end of development cycles due to constraints in the test environment. Taking a shift-left approach to performance testing can identify API and UI issues earlier in the development lifecycle and reduce the cost of remediating defects once the application is fully built. This session will help you learn how to reuse functional test scripts to optimize early-stage performance testing.
