Have you ever wondered what is involved in doing load testing of web applications? What if you had to support 100,000 simultaneous users on Day 0? Do you have to integrate with 3rd party services? How do you strategically isolate and test those dependencies? What do you do when your tests reveal performance problems? Join us in a talk about web load testing using open source tools, the AWS cloud, dependency isolation, DB profiling, OS tuning, and not being targeted as a botnet.
