Performance Testing 101
21st December 2015

It has been quite a year for us.  One where we’ve been laying some nice foundations for the future to come.

One of them has been The Dojo and the increasingly growing catalogue of software testing content.

As with everything we do, we love to team up with the experts.  And on this occasion, Simon Knight has expertly created a complete video series to get you started doing performance testing with free and open source tools.  There are a whopping 24 videos to teach you all the things you should know!  Imagine how clever your boss will think you are once you’ve consumed all the knowledge!

The Performance Testing 101 series is part of The Dojo.
