Supercharging Performance Testing: Bridging the Gap Between Backend and Frontend with k6

Click to see for talk abstract

A very key aspect of software engineering is ensuring your application performs optimally under heavy load. In this talk, the speaker will introduce k6, an open-source tool that integrates protocol-based load testing and browser testing. The talk will start off by introducing the audience to the basics of protocol-based load testing and how it can empower developers to assess the resilience and scalability of backend systems. Next, we’ll dive deep into the nitty gritty of k6, learning how it can enable us to simulate real-world user scenarios and uncover bottlenecks. After that, we will see how k6 provides valuable insights about an application under heavy load and how it can bring backend and frontend performance evaluations together. By the end of this session, the audience will be armed with the knowledge and tools needed to supercharge your performance testing strategy, ensuring that applications not only withstand the most demanding conditions but also deliver an exceptional user experience.
