  • "Load Tests 101! Why and where to start?", with Aurélien Deleusière
    Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Nov 10 will be "Load Tests 101! Why and where to start?", with Aurélien Deleusière. (Topic description and speaker bio below.) MEETING URL: http://experts.adobeconnect.com/cfmeetup/ TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker) Let’s be honest, we’re not always doing load tests before going to production. And it worked well... until this famous day that became a nightmare and you told to yourself "Never again. Ever." Sizing complex system requires a clear methodology about load tests. Which components to be tested? How to tests them? What is the influence of the infrastructure itself? Are you able to guarantee the response times and the SLA your business committed to? What are the limits of your application? Are you able to resist to that peak on Christmas campaign? Is your application just working as usual under high traffic? We’ll also introduce how to use Gatling, a high performances load testing framework, and simple tools like Fusion Reactor and Mission Control. ABOUT THE SPEAKER: (provided by the speaker) Aurel is a French software engineer specialized in web development and architecture. He started building applications with Adobe ColdFusion in 1997 at the great time of Internet pioneers’. With people in mind, he always strives for simplicity and quality in development, without sacrificing security and performances. Having spent time troubleshooting, fine-tuning, fixing, auditing, securing, architecting, coding applications for large international companies... he witnessed a lot of scenes of crime, he shares his knowledge with developers for building better applications.

I'll also cover how to release your own projects for the community to share. Then you'll be the one receiving pull requests! This talk is for developers who want to help out with their favorite open source project and one-off libraries alike but don't know where to start. People who are a little intimidated by GitHub.

In this presentation, we'll look at NativeScript, an open source platform for doing just that. Not only do you get to use the skills you already have, but you can take advantage of millions of lines of code already written for you on NPM. NativeScript is free, open source and approachable for ColdFusion developers.

In addition to those streaming recording posted immediately after the meeting, we now also post recordings at http://www.vimeo.com/cfmeetup usually within a day of the meeting. ABOUT THE SPEAKER: (provided by the speaker) TJ VanToll is a developer advocate for Telerik, a jQuery team member, and the author of jQuery UI in Action. He has over a decade of web development experience—specializing in performance and the mobile web—and speaks about his research at conferences around the world.

(Note that the calendar entry created will show the event taking 2 hours. That's a default that meetup.com has chosen, which I can't change. The meetings are generally about an hour, though often go as much as 30-45 minutes longer with Q&A and chat.)
