Keynote of TestIstanbul 2023

Why are we still performance testing?

My speech for TestIstanbul 2023 will look at historical and current reasons for Performance Testing. Why the requirement is still as valid now as it was 10 years ago despite advances in testing technology and application design.

  • Why core applications continue to fail.
  • Historical reasons for performance testing compared to current requirements.
  • The influence of recent advances in technology such as AI and applicationdesign on performance testing – i.e. Can ChatGPT really author my scripts?
  • Prediction – What will the situation be in another 10 years?
