Performance testing has always been neglected by developers. We write unit tests and integration tests but for some reason we never test the performance of our apps and when we do is already too late because our users are complaining about it. It has not been historically easy to write these tests and we usually rely on manual testing, which is not really accurate, or complicated tools that we don’t even know how to use or we don’t understand. But, is there an easy way to write and automate performance tests? Yes there is, and I’m going to show you how you can do it.
In this talk you will learn how you can write and automate performance tests for your Android apps. We will explore different ways of writing performance tests and we will see how we can take advantage of a few not well-known APIs that the Android platform offer us to help us in our journey towards the perfect automation testing suite.
