Gatling @ DevoxxFR 2019

Gatling @ DevoxxFR 2019

One week ago, we went to Devoxx France. Here is a short recap of our highlights during this event!

First of all, we would like to thank all the Devoxx team, it has been a great 2019 edition! See you next year for the 2020 edition!

What happened in the past year?

We were delighted to meet our community again, 1 year after our first participation to DevoxxFR 2018.

Last year, we had a small booth in the startup area: It was a great 2018 highlight for us, though. We decided for this year to get to the next level: We were very proud to be a Silver Sponsor of the 2019 edition!

Since the 2018 edition, we released Gatling 3, Gatling’s latest major version. Many new features were implemented (HTTP/2 support), you can find more information here.

Regarding Gatling FrontLine, it is now available in AWS Marketplace. Many new features, in terms of reporting and integrations, were also released in the past 12 months.

We made more than 200 demos! It was a real pleasure to show what we are working on and get your feedback.

Gatling’s new identity

We are currently in the process of changing our logo and design. More than 7 years after Gatling’s first stable release and almost 4 years after Gatling Corp’s creation, we thought it was time to make some changes!

To celebrate our new design, we offered our users tee-shirts, stickers, coasters and power banks! And, also, 5 days of free load testing in AWS Marketplace!

Our new website will be published soon! Stay tuned!

“Load testing in hostile territory”

Guillaume Corré, our lead DevOps, gave a talk about “Load testing in hostile territory: How to do everything at the last minute and pull it off”.

Many people contact us, saying they neither have time nor ressources to do load testing. It is unfortunately a common situation. There are, however, quick-win strategies that you can implement: This talk will guide you through all the steps of these strategies.

You can find Guillaume’s slides here and the ressources in the following repo: https://github.com/notdryft/hostile-territory

The video is coming soon!

A lot of people couldn’t attend the conference because the room was full: Guillaume plan to do this talk again this year. Stay tuned! We will keep you updated.

Again, a huge thanks to the Devoxx team and to our users and see you next year 😉

The Gatling team
