The course is intended primarily for testers and developers who want to learn about performance testing. The focus of the course is on testing web applications, but the principles can also be used in other areas (databases, queues, web services, etc.). Load testing has an irreplaceable role in the development and operation of software. Without it, the problems will be reflected in the production environment and will be taken away by your users. Together, we will go through theories and practical examples in Apache JMeter's open-source tool.


The course is aimed at all IT professionals who want to learn performance testing.
