Stéphane is the creator of the open source load testing tool Gatling and the CTO of Gatling Corp, the company behind the project.
He's also a committer on the Netty project, a maintainer on scala-maven-plugin.
His main interest lies in Java and Scala.
QA had thoroughly tested the new release, performed Unit tests, functional tests and yet... we still crashed.
The ultimate goal in development is to make sure the application works for the end users in the production env, not just in QA. This is where load testing comes in.
This session will give you some basics about load testing, how to avoid common pitfalls and how to build efficient load tests with Gatling.
