Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Esteban Herrera. Welcome to my course JMeter: Getting Started. I have been developing and designing software for more than 10 years, and JMeter was one of the first things I learned early in my career. JMeter is one of the most popular performance testing tools in the industry. In addition to having a lot of functionality, it has many plugins that allow you to test many different types of servers in almost every way you can imagine. This course is going to teach you the basics of testing web applications using JMeter. Some of the major topics that we will cover include what is performance testing? How tests are structured in JMeter. How to record tests using JMeter's Script Recorder. How to configure dynamic tests. And how to interpret and collect results. By the end of this course, you'll have a foundational knowledge of how to create performance tests for web applications using JMeter. There are no prerequisites for this course. I'll start from zero. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn JMeter with the JMeter: Getting Started course at Pluralsight.
