Continuous integration (CI) is the practice of frequently merging working copies early in the developing process. Among a wide variety of testing disciplines, performance can boost development process as part of CI.
Performance tests consume lots of memory, CPU and the machine resources in general. By itself, performance is expensive. But, you can do much for free. By using JMeter as the main performance tool and continuously integrating everything on Jenkins, great results can be accomplished.
How does team see tester?
Testing is often seen as a destructive activity. So, the role of the tester sometimes can be really specific. In some cases, tester won’t fit in the team easily. Developers sometimes think that tester is against them and that could produce problems. The software tester needs to convince the rest of the team that her/his part is really important and to have good communication with them and in a nice way prove them that he is not their opponent. Tester plays on the same team, just with different duties.
