With big sales events such as Black Friday becoming increasingly popular, load testing can provide crucial information when planning for periods of increased traffic. I will relay my experience of developing Gatling load test suites for two of our clients, the hurdles and pitfalls I encountered, and the lessons learnt. It will be a mix of technical plus some non-technical aspects, such as planning a load test and dealing with customer expectations. I will also cover how we have recently started using Flood.io to provide infrastructure for running our tests and the benefits it provides.

Nice introduction to Gatling, which looks like a great automation and load testing library, and I guess a nice alternative to JMeter.

Really clear and accessible of Gatling and its syntax - I can definitely see myself being able to pick this up in the future and get going relatively quickly!
