Advanced Performance Exploration - in this session you’ll discover an overall approach to the process of root-cause analysis, traversing the architecture of the system front-to-back, top-to-bottom. Take tour of how you can logically walk through each layer, analyzing different metrics and observing different behaviors such as request queuing, latencies, bandwidth capacity and congestion. Learn a simple model for exploring performance that you can apply to any system, any architecture.
Harnessing the Power of JMeter - If you have used JMeter for simple performance testing tasks, but want to learn more, this is the workshop for you! Unlock the power of JMeter by learning how to take full advantage of its capabilities.
5 Ways to Make Load Testing Work for You - In this Session, you'll learn 5 ways you can simulate realistic load testing of your system, mitigate your risks, & create reliable, continuous performance testing for a better and more efficient end user experience.
Performance Testing for DevOps - See how performance testing can become part of your continuous deployment life cycle, to achieve fast deployment of scalable applications.
Eran Kinsbruner & Amir Rozenberg
Implementing 'single user performance testing in CI - will explain and demonstrate how teams can build an entire “WindTunnel” solution that defines target user “personas” in the mobile space.
Ramya Ramalinga Moorthy
Queuing Theory & it's Application in Performance Testing - This session will cover practical case studies & some of foundation concepts which are essential for Performance Testers to have an idea on Performance Modeling & Application Capacity Planning.
Effective Performance Engineering - 4 ways to get started with Effective Performance Engineering now. After spending much of their careers working in this space, and ongoing discussions that Shane and Todd had, they co-authored a book published by O’Reilly titled “Effective Performance Engineering.” Todd will walk you through how to get started, covering many of the examples and more in-depth stories, so to continue to share proven practices to ensure Effective Performance Engineering for you.
Performance Engineering Approaches & Analyzing Results - Rebeccas shows easy, methodical approaches to designing load tests and analyzing your results. Discover how to THINK like A Seasoned Performance Engineer and become Very valuable!
Performance Engineering with Dynatrace AppMon (Free to use tool) - In this session discover how APM tools such as Dynatrace AppMon, AppDynamics, NewRelic, work. How to install them in your environment, how to integrate them with your load testing tools (JMeter, Gatling, LoadRunner, Silk, …) and how Andreas goes about analyzing APM data. He will be showing you how I analyzed the most common performance problem patterns, how tools help you through automatic analysis and teach you how you can do the same within minutes.
Load Testing Done Right with Gatling - This talk covers some methodology and tooling for load testing, and then focuses on Gatling. Gatling is an open-source load testing tool used to generate virtual users, typically browsing a website.
How to 'Shift-Right' in the Performance Lifecycle. This session will directly address the ‘Shift-Right’ paradigm; Performance lifecycle from ideation to design, development, testing through to operations and back again. The value-driven delivery approach to validating and verifying non-functional requirements as part of designing, building and deploying next generation platforms such as Smart Cities & IoT.
iOT Performance Testing - in this session Henrik a performance specialist at Neotys will explain the challenges and approaches to testing you should take when dealing with internet of things testing.
The app is slow: Using Distributed Tracing to Find, and Fix, Latency Problems. In this session you’ll discover how to look at Zipkin and the world of distributed tracing. You'll see how to easily instrument applications and get a call graph that helps you pinpoint problem areas.
Performance Testing with Anomaly Detection from Selenium Tests - In this session Andrew from lazycoder.io will share ways automation engineers can leverage their existing skillsets to help with their teams performance testing efforts.
How to Get Rid of JMeter Constraints - JMeter is a very good tool but it is also commonly qualified as a resource intensive and complex solution. In this session, our expert will show you how OctoPerf optimises the global JMeter experience from scripting to results in order to optimise your testing experience and go beyond what JMeter offers.
Reinventing Performance Testing - The industry is transforming before our eyes and performance testing should change too. A stereotypical, last-moment performance validation in a test lab using an expensive record-playback load testing tool is no longer enough.
Centralizing Performance Testing Data with Splunk - In this session you'll discover how to use Splunk to help plot and chart your performance data

What's in It For You?
WATCH SESSIONS AT YOUR OWN PACE
At traditional conferences many times you end up missing a session you really wanted to attend. Or you forgot something that the presenter mentioned. Not at PerfGuild -- watch each session as many times as you like!
So you will be able to listen to the talks at your own pace as many times as you like.
NO EXPENSIVE AIRLINE TICKETS OR HOTEL ROOMS
You need to keep learning. One of the most rewarding ways to do this is by attending conferences. Unfortunately, sometimes it's difficult to make it to a conference due to travel costs, the price of the conference ticket, or your ability to take time off. Save yourself heaps of time by not having to travel to a conference and try to be able to fit it into your busy schedule.
No boring PowerPoint
ACTIONABLE PERFORMANCE TESTING AWESOMENESS
Not just powerpoint presentations - real world examples. Our goal is to have as many high quality screen share sessions where the presenter is actually showing real world examples rather than high level slides.
This is not a webinar! These are high quality hands-on sessions with a professional live stream. You'll also be able to easily ask questions anytime. My goal is to make guild conferences attendee led events. Think of this as a hybrid course/conference.

What Other Guild Members are Saying
Thanks for the conference. It was awesome! Best value I've ever seen in a testing -automation conference.
Of all the online test automation conferences or tech conferences, I've attended, this is the first one that didn't suck and that I actually enjoyed!
As a test but also as a mom of two young children the guild conference was the perfect format for me. I can listen to the speakers at the best time for me and having the videos available to refer back to any time was awesome
