I, Vishal Parmar, am a person exploring different verticals of IT Profession. I entered the IT world in 2015, just after pursuing bachelor’s degree in Engineering, and it has been a marvelous journey to say the least. I started as a System Engineer Trainee in Infosys – Mysore in May’ 2015 and was part of Infosys till Dec’ 2018 – Journey started with System Engineer Trainee and completed as Test Analyst. Since Dec’ 2018, I’ve been in Paul Mason Consulting Ltd. and as of now I’m holding responsibilities of Automation Lead. 

I’m majorly invested in five verticals of IT Profession. One: Functional Testing. Two: Automation Engineering – Creation, Enhancement and Upgradation of Frameworks. Three: Performance Engineering – Similar to Automation, Creation, Enhancement and Upgradation of Frameworks, Four: Documentation and/or Strategical Approach – Part of the team wherein we create best fit strategical approach for problem statements and Five: Mentor/ Guide 

I’ve got my hands dirty with various kind of frameworks and the world around it. One: Web Automation – Selenium, Protractor, Cypress, WebDriverIO. Two: API Automation – Postman-Newman, Supertest, RestAssured. Three: Mobile Automation – Appium, Cypress. Four: Performance Vertical – JMeter, Flood.io, Artillery. Five: Continuous Integration: Jenkins, Gitlab CI 

I’ve got firm grip on three programming languages: Java, JavaScript and Python

I’m a person who is research driven and heavily invested towards on approach. Always keen to better the current state of situation and make sure current solution is THE better version of it’s previous one. Firm believer of “Quality over Quantity”

Load Testing Beyond the Apparent Approach

You know what? In recent years, Testing has broken the shackles of mimicking user behaviour on application. One of the many verticals is Load Testing. Well, it seems to be a heavy and difficult term in comparison to Functional testing. Have you ever thought of load test happening on a real-time browser? Yes; you heard it correct. While working with one of the client’s problem statements, we grabbed an opportunity to devise a solution which is based on a realistic load testing approach.

The session is encircled around how Flood Element’s Browser Based Load Testing Approach has brought a new horizon to the world of testing, importance, benefits & limitations. Into the bargain how it can be leveraged to perform a realistic load on the application, how it provides the flavour of both front and back-end performance. As they say, cherry on the cake makes it more beautiful so session will have various statistical reports of the solution and how it has an edge over Protocol Based approach such as JMeter. 

As tagline of ATAGTR2022 says, “Test beyond the obvious”, let’s be part of the discussion and explore the not so obvious path of BROWSER BASED LOAD TESTING, shall we?
