18:30 - 18:40 - AWS testing services overview - Boaz Ziniman is a Technical Evangelist at AWS

18:45 - 19:15 - Integrate load test scripts to CI with Taurus and Jenkins on AWS

Continuous Performance Testing in the Cloud with Open Source Taurus In the DevOps era, being able to automate performance testing provides teams with many advantages. Additionally, the adoption of a Shift Left strategy, with more frequent tests and run earlier in the development cycle, increases the need for developers (not just traditional QA professionals) to have the knowledge and tools needed to be able to run these tests. While open source load testing tools like JMeter, Gatling, and others are great, they each have a steep learning curve and using these tools as part of Continuous Integration makes it even more challenging. We will have an interactive session on Taurus, an open source test automation tool designed for developers, and that helps to overcome numerous testing challenges. We’ll show how to: Easily create and run any open-source load test scripts using Taurus
Leverage AWS EC2 to scale tests to any desired level of traffic, by spinning up thousands of AWS cloud instances within minutes

Guy Salton is a Sr. Professional Services Engineer at CA-BlazeMeter, specializing in Jenkins, Continuous Integration (CI) and JMeter. He has five years of experience in the fields of DevOps and information systems. His fields of proficiency include open-source continuous testing and load testing, while advocating the “shifting left” methodology as a means for optimizing development and product quality.

19:15 - 19:50 - Container-based Microservices DevOps in AWS - How Perfecto Did it and What We Learned So Far

Moving an entire dev organization from developing monolith servers in a self-hosted DC to an agile organization of autonomous teams developing microservices in the cloud is not an easy task. You have a lot to catch up with. In this talk, we will share the evolution of our microservices architecture in AWS - how we started, what has changed since and where we are now. We will discuss some of the (good and bad) decisions we took, what we learned in the process and where we’re heading next.

Moshe Ben Shoham is a System Architect at Perfecto, bringing over 17 years of experience in the world of software (out of which almost 10 at Perfecto), with strong engineering professional skills in enterprise software, development methodologies, DevOps and cloud services. In his current role, he supports and pushes the development teams as they transform to new-age autonomous teams, developing microservices-based large scale services in the cloud.
