Continuous Integration (CI) is a key step in the Agile development methodology. CI enables teams to continuously integrate new or modified code into a shared repository and verify it with an automated build. Tests are run continuously to detect errors quickly and easily.

Taurus (, an open-source test automation framework, can be integrated with CI tools with plugins, to automate open-source tools, like JMeter for load testing and Selenium for GUI testing on a single browser. It lets them run tests automatically and in parallel to achieve better test coverage.

Teams can scale load and functional tests in the cloud using BlazeMeter and be able to view and analyze test results for JMeter and Selenium through rich reports and identify issues and trends early.

In this meetup, I will show you how teams can easily scale functional, load & Performance test with everyday tools such as JMeter, Selenium, Taurus.
