Is your application slow? Do you want to make sure it *isn’t* slow? Want to know what happens when a lot of people start using you application? Well, Visual Studio 2012’s Load Testing tools can help you out. Performance testing your application consists of four parts: 1) create the tests for each use case, 2) convert the use case tests into Load Tests, 3) run large-scale Load Tests simulating hundreds of users using a Load Test Rig, and 4) analyzing the results and fixing any problems. In this course, we’ll walk you through how to performance test your web-based or service-based application using the Visual Studio 2012 Load Testing and Performance Testing tools.
