Performance bottleneck analysis made simple to set direction towards Performance Engineering

Enroll in this course at .

The course objective is to teach performance problem diagnosis techniques to help in transitioning Performance Testers to have career path in Performance Engineering discipline.

Starting from basics, this course offers fundamental conceptual knowledge towards identifying performance bottleneck & how to use various techniques (like scatter plot analysis, correlation analysis, threshold analysis, memory leak analysis, transaction footprint analysis, browser performance analysis, hardware foot-printing, code profiling, heap dump analysis, GC analysis, etc) required for troubleshooting performance problems of web / mobile applications during performance testing along with performance analysis story telling sessions.

Though this course includes sample snapshots of various tools while explaining how & when to apply each technique, this is a tool agnostic course to teach the art of performance bottleneck analysis for investigating the health of the system during performance tests. It will not cover the deep dive insights about using the tools to carry out the discussed techniques in detail.

Target Audience includes Performance Testers & other QA professionals who are interested in performance bottleneck analysis beyond performance testing. This is a Beginner to Intermediate level course that can help on performance problem diagnosis, for taking up advanced Performance Engineering courses in future.

At the end of this four hours course, you will realize the need for holistic mindset & will carry a better attitude towards performance problem solving during performance testing. Upon purchase, you are eligible for life-time access to the course & hence you can watch this course any number of times at your ease.

In nutshell, this course is for Performance Analysts who are interested to know beyond using a performance testing tool, for doing system performance analysis to investigate the system health.
