About this book

As organizations have developed the monitoring and testing of the non-functional requirements of their products, a new multi-disciplinary approach has emerged: performance engineering. Establishing a performance engineering culture in an organization can be challenging, though, as it can be quite expensive to set up and needs active involvement from many different teams.

This is where Performance Engineering for Developers comes in. This essential guide will enable you to implement a performance engineering mindset and culture in your organization, which will improve reliability and, most importantly, user happiness.

Moving from the theoretical to the practical, this book begins with explanations of the various roles and responsibilities in an organization with a performance engineering mindset, shows you how to prepare your organization to take on this mindset, and then takes you through the nuts and bolts of performance testing, including visualizing your results to make them easily understandable for all stakeholders.

By the end of the book, your understanding of the performance engineering mindset will be sufficient for you to establish it in a company of any size, enabling the company to continually release high-quality products for happy customers.
