Overview: Your big new app is launching in a few weeks. You've got your press and partnerships all lined up. Is everything going to run smoothly on the big day? How do you know? Having a service outage during a big launch window can crush user uptake and cause poor app store ratings that are very difficult to recover from. Join Dave Grijalva, co-founder of FitStar, for a discussion of the tools and techniques used at FitStar to analyze how their services will perform before they go live. Learn how they estimate traffic, measure service performance, and perform load tests to be ready for anything. See examples of common gotchas that could cause surprises in the wild.
