Performance testing and why even the imperfect one is important

In a growing world of data-driven applications and pipelines, performance testing should always be part of your roadmap to ensure that your application or pipeline provides your organization with the efficiency, reliability, and throughput needed to support your needs.

This session will discuss the concept of an "imperfect" performance test, what are common pitfalls, and what are some best practices to deliver solid performance tests to tackle real-world scenarios, highlighting how the "imperfect" performance test can provide invaluable insights into how your code will behave under stress, resource limitations, and unexpected usage patterns.

By the end of this talk, participants should have a broader and more in-depth understanding of the importance of performance testing, why it is essential to strive for perfection during such tests, and most importantly, that there are many lessons and benefits that even the most "imperfect" performance test can share.
