Abstract

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.” ― E.F. Schumacher

KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) reflects the above quote as a Software Engineering principle. Most often than not it is disregarded in the battlefields of companies rushing through deadlines.

In this talk I will Go through the context, process and the thoughtful design decisions involved in building Vegeta, an HTTP load testing tool and library written in Go. It will be over 9000!!!

Fixe, por acaso curtia de aprender a testar decentemente a resposta de algumas das minhas aplicações sobre carga

Estou curioso para ver, pela primeira vez, um pouco de Go. Só o facto de ter o dedo da Google torna-o prometedor.

Boa sorte!

Load testing is definitely not trivial. Will you be talking about it in detail or just presenting that particular load testing tool?

Tomás Senart
on , said:

+ Henrique Rodrigues, I would present the problem of load testing in the context where it appeared, followed by my solution for it. Load testing is a broad topic with many layers. I will only address the ones that Vegeta targets, providing enough details for the audience to fit it mentally in the tools landscape.
