Show Me Numbers! Automated Browser Performance Testing

Here's my talk from AtlasCamp 2013, Atlassian's annual plugin developer conference held in Amsterdam.

My topic is Automated Browser Performance Testing.

JavaScript developers often talk about performance, always tweaking to make the user experience faster. The good developers carefully and accurately measure this performance in multiple browsers. The great developers automate this measurement.

In this talk I tell the full-stack story of the design and implementation of User Experience (UX) performance tests in JIRA. Learn techniques critical to improve not only actual performance, but also perceived performance - and when they are not the same thing!
