Course Summary

In order to optimize a web or mobile application, or to assist with the sizing of the infrastructure required for it to function properly, we need to prepare and execute load simulations using the proper tools. That’s what performance testing is about.

What will I learn?

    Upon completing the certification, you will master the fundamental concepts of performance testing, and will be able to come up with a load execution simulating concurrent users from different countries. The three main course areas are:

  • Introduction to performance testing concepts

  • Automation and preparation of load tests in JMeter

  • Execution in BlazeMeter

Our teaching methodology includes:

  • Segmented 1-5 minute-long instructive videos

  • Written reference material

  • Fun and practical exercises for everyday use

  • Forums and continuous online assistance

  • Evaluation quizzes

  • Prerequisites and Requirements

  • Some background knowledge of the software development process

  • Understanding of the HTTP protocol (recommended)

  • HTML (recommended)

  • Web architectures (recommended)

  • Scripting and coding concepts (variables, constants, parameters, values)

"Abstracta Academy does an excellent job in breaking down the mystery and complexity surrounding performance testing. Their course on performance testing with JMeter provides a great entry point for testing professionals looking to start their journey into the performance testing world..."

Alexander Podelko

Consulting Member of Technical Staff, Performance Engineering at Oracle

"A very good introduction in performance testing with JMeter and Blazemeter - covering all steps you need to know from the very beginning to running full-scale performance tests. A nice combination of information, video, and instructor feedback makes it quite entertaining. The related topics needed for better understanding are covered too. For example, I like the way the discussion about the HTTP protocol is integrated into the training. A great way to do first steps in performance testing - and I hope that Abstracta Academy continues with more advanced classes."
