At the PerfGuild we focus on actionable knowledge that you can use right away to help improve your testing efforts.
Our hope is that you’ll discover a tip, tool, technique or best practice that will accelerate your new or existing performance testing efforts.
Our goal is to have as many high quality screen share sessions where the presenter is actually showing real world examples rather than high level slides.
Real results by real performance engineers. We've brought the best speakers in the world to bring you the knowledge you need to stay ahead of the curve in the performance testing. Also since its all online and there is no travel required you get access to a more diverse group of testers from all over the world. At the last AutomationGuild conference we had folks from over 46 countries!

We will walk through examples of REST APIs and also learn how to use distributed load testing for APIs. *LIVE Q&A starts at 10:30AM
Performance Engineering with Dynatrace AppMon (Free to use tool) - In this session discover how APM tools such as Dynatrace AppMon, AppDynamics, NewRelic, work. How to install them in your environment, how to integrate them with your load testing tools (JMeter, Gatling, LoadRunner, Silk, …) and how Andreas goes about analyzing APM data. He will be showing you how I analyzed the most common performance problem patterns, how tools help you through automatic analysis and teach you how you can do the same within minutes. *LIVE Q&A starts at 11:30AM
Performance Engineering Approaches & Analyzing Results - Easy, methodical approaches to designing load tests and analyzing your results.THINK like A Seasoned Performance Engineer and become Very valuable!Here we tackle and simplify the toughest challenge of performance engineering: Analysis of the data derived from load tests. Analysis skills are the MOST important and HIGHLY sought after. Learn how to analyze the sea of collected data to understand the application’s scalability limitations. Isolate Bottlenecks. Deep Dive.

WATCH SESSIONS AT YOUR OWN PACE
At traditional conferences many times you end up missing a session you really wanted to attend. Or you forgot something that the presenter mentioned. Not at PerfGuild -- watch each session as many times as you like!
So you will be able to listen to the talks at your own pace as many times as you like.
NO EXPENSIVE AIRLINE TICKETS OR HOTEL ROOMS
You need to keep learning. One of the most rewarding ways to do this is by attending conferences. Unfortunately, sometimes it's difficult to make it to a conference due to travel costs, the price of the conference ticket, or your ability to take time off. Save yourself heaps of time by not having to travel to a conference and try to be able to fit it into your busy schedule.
ACTIONABLE PERFORMANCE TESTING AWESOMENESS
Not just powerpoint presentations - real world examples. Our goal is to have as many high quality screen share sessions where the presenter is actually showing real world examples rather than high level slides.
This is not a webinar! These are high quality hands-on sessions with a professional live stream. You'll also be able to easily ask questions anytime. My goal is to make guild conferences attendee led events. Think of this as a hybrid course/conference.
DISCOVER PROVEN TEST METHODS
We've brought the best speakers in the world to bring you the knowledge you need to stay ahead of the curve in the performance testing space.
You’ll receive access to the Guild Conferences site and all its content/videos for up to a year after the conference is over, affording you the opportunity to download it to your own device(s) where it can be kept for as long as you wish. If you can’t make a Q&A session live, all live aspects of the conference will also be recorded and uploaded to the site within 48 hours.
Thanks for the conference. It was awesome! Best value I've ever seen in a testing -automation conference.
Of all the online test automation conferences or tech conferences, I've attended, this is the first one that didn't suck and that I actually enjoyed!
As a test but also as a mom of two young children the guild conference was the perfect format for me. I can listen to the speakers at the best time for me and having the videos available to refer back to any time was awesome
