Our k6 Champion program keeps growing and growing! We’ve accepted more amazing contributors. One of them is Marlo Henrique, a QA Engineer from Brazil. Marlo caught our eye because he’s written many articles and even created a high-rated course dedicated to k6. As a k6 Champion, Marlo will help us spread more word and advocacy about k6 in the Brazilian market and beyond.
Now, let’s get to know him more!
My name is Marlo Henrique, and I am a resident of Brazil. I have a degree in Software Engineering from the Federal University of Ceará, and I currently work as a QA Engineer at Zup Innovation.
I am constantly seeking new solutions to improve the quality and reliability of our products. Additionally, I enjoy sharing and disseminating this newfound knowledge with the teams I am a part of and the wider community.
I am passionate about the sea, and whenever possible, I am at the nearest beach, enjoying the breeze and the wonderful sun of my state. I also value the tranquility of my home, where I can read articles, watch good series, or even play some Overwatch. As a hobby, I have been venturing into creating bots for Telegram and web scraping during my free time.
When I performed my first proof of concept with k6, I immediately noticed some characteristics that set the tool apart from other solutions available in the market. This motivated me to quickly initiate a movement to adopt k6, including seeking to make it one of the official tools of the largest bank in Latin America for performance testing.
I identified the need to become an enthusiastic advocate for k6 to drive this evangelization movement of the tool and share learnings and knowledge, aiming to go beyond the Brazilian market. I see a great need to break the paradigm created by other solutions that performance testing is complicated.
I have a course on Udemy titled Performance Testing with k6 that has over 400 students and received the highest rating for the topic.
- Performance test with k6: Knowing and Running Your First Test
- Using Environment Variables with k6
- Using Stackspot in Creating Performance Tests with k6
- Using AWS Secret Manager with k6
It’s challenging to list so many points, but the main ones are:
- The simplicity of writing using JS/TS.
- The excellent documentation the tool provides!
- The ability to evaluate performance both in the frontend and backend.
Without a doubt, it’s the stages. The simplicity they provide in configuring different scenarios through Ramping VUs is incredible.
The community is full of opportunities to make the tool even better. Don’t hesitate! Every new piece of knowledge, suggestion, or idea is important. Come be a part of something even bigger. 💜
The k6 Champions Program aims to recognise performance testing experts within our community from across the globe and amplify their contributions. To learn more about this program, check out our launch blog post or visit our official k6 Champions Program landing page.
