DevOpsDays Dallas took place August 29-30, 2023 at the Plano Events Center in Plano, Texas. The same group of seasoned organizers that organized this event for several years in a row were back again to celebrate its sixth anniversary.

Continuous Performance Testing in DevOps

Lee Barnes, Chief Quality Officer at Forte Group gave a talk on continuous performance testing in DevOps.

Lee began his talk by stating that traditional performance testing as the ONLY evaluation of system performance is dead. If you wait until new features are functionally complete and tested, there’s no time to enhance and maintain the performance test suite before the end of the sprint. 


Lee presented a more effective approach: continuous performance monitoring:

  • Evaluation of performance at each stage of the delivery pipeline
  • More frequent and visible performance feedback
  • Trending of performance data across builds


Lee details an implementation approach – how you can get started with continuous performance monitoring in your organization.

The video below includes the first part of Lee’s talk. Stay tuned for the second part of his talk in a blog post we’ll publish next week.
