We are excited to introduce Enes Kühn to the k6 community and have him as one of our k6 Champions! Enes is a QA Solution Architect and a big advocate of k6.
Enes was also a guest in last week's k6 Office Hours episode where we did an AMA (Ask Me Anything) style and answered all your questions about k6 and performance testing.
Now, let's get to know him a bit more!
Tell us a little bit about yourself
I’m Enes Kühn, and I work as a QA Solution Architect. I began my IT career as a developer and realised that most of my tasks were delivered late since I was spending too much time on feature testing and thinking from a user perspective, and asking questions such as “What if a user does this?”
Naturally, I made a career switch and became a QA Automation Engineer. Even though my daily tasks mostly focus on functional testing, I like to go outside the box and do performance, scalability, and security testing. These are also essential requirements that we should be testing.
What do you do outside of work?
My main roles are being a father (of two sons) and a husband. I love spending my free time with my family and friends, enjoying long walks, riding bicycles, or playing sports. Sundays are reserved for the Kids Sunday Football League, where my friends and I cheer for our team.
What made you decide to become a k6 Champion?
I used k6 on several active engagements where I achieved the impossible and pushed the limits with minimal effort and resource consumption. Now, it’s my turn to share knowledge, contribute, and help k6 become an even better tool.
How are you currently helping the k6 community?
By sharing my k6 experience through my blogs and open sessions. I have written articles such as The Perks and Pitfalls of Load Testing with k6 and Load Testing Made Simpler with Resource Object Model.
I've also participated at k6 Office Hours where I share my thoughts about performance testing and my experience so far of being a k6 champion.
What do you love about k6?
The fact that with a single k6 instance, you can run a large test and you can generate thousands and thousands of virtual users.
What's your most favourite k6 feature?
k6 browser for sure. It gives more context and power to existing features, especially now that it's been added natively as part of k6 core as an experimental module.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to become a k6 Champion?
Think outside the box and continue learning and exploring new tools or features. Together, we can make tools better and life easier.
