Online Courses / Tutorials
I am new to performance testing, coming from a functional testing background. I am in performance 2 weeks and we use Loadrunner.
Can you recommend any online courses or tutorials that would be beneficial for me to get me up and running?
This forum is a great place to learn.
For stating this you definitely need a mentor. You can also visit various blogs on performance testing.
HP provides a lot of online trainings in Loadrunner under section training by product. You should have HP account to access this. Create one, if not.
