  • Course Performance Testing : Content

    In the course Performance Testing you will learn how to obtain quantitative results on the performance of applications under different test scenarios.

    Importance of Performance

    Performance is an aspect that is becoming increasingly important and is a prerequisite for making applications a success. Downtime, visitors clicking away and negative media attention can all be the result of poor performance of an application.

    Measurement of Performance

    During the course Performance Testing a method is developed with which the performance of an application can be measured and the results can be analyzed.

    Test Plan

    In the first place the course Performance Testing pays attention to making a test plan with parameters such as workload and transactions to be tested. This also includes stress testing. Tools such as JMeter and Gatling are used when specifying scripts and executing them.

    Test Results

    The results of the tests are reported and analyzed. Conclusions and recommendations are made based on the measurements.

    Scalability and Reliability

    Finally the course Performance Testing pays attention to evaluating qualitative aspects such as scalability and reliability.

    Audience Course Performance Testing

    The course Performance Testing is intended for testers, developers and others who want to learn the tools and techniques of performance testing.

    Prerequisites Performance Testing

    Experience with testing is required. Experience with the basic principles of programming is recommended, but not strictly necessary.

    Realization training Performance Testing

    The training Performance Testing is an interactive classroom training with room for your own cases. It is a hands-on training in which theory and practice are interchanged. The theory is presented on the basis of slides and demos. Several scenarios are implemented as exercises. The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30.

    Certification Performance Testing

    Participants receive an official certificate Performance Testing after successful completion of the course.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
