Load Testing Made Easy - Diana Corbacho

Talk abstract: 

Megaload is a scalable, high performance load testing tool written in Erlang that provides automatic deployment on cloud environments allowing simulating a massive amount of load to stress your system. Its architecture allows adding new protocols and features with a small effort and can be customised extensively.

In this talk, we will discuss how to approach the load testing of web services using Megaload and we will look at the challenges and lessons learned from writing a load testing tool in Erlang.

About Diana Corbacho: 

Diana discovered Erlang in 2007 while studying at University of La Coruña (Spain). Since then, she has been involved in both commercial and research Erlang projects in Spain and UK. Currently, she is a researcher in the PROWESS project at Erlang Solutions where she focuses on performance testing through the development of Megaload.

    I finish work at 6pm, as I would imagine most people do. These meetups used to start at 6.30, and even that was a challenge to get to on time. Is there any way we can at least go back to the old timeslot?

      Hi Leo, it won't start right away. Most people come between 6 and 6.30. We lay some beers and pizza at 6 and people do a bit of socialising while we're wait for everyone to turn up. So if you come a bit later you're probably still going to catch the talk.

      The 6pm time slot is almost impossible for me. I agree that the original 7pm time slot is much more convinient.

    I'm not sure I can make it to the meetup, so I'll ask this question here: We're looking at load testing options right now. Is Megaload ready for use right now? Does it have a website?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
