I teach k6 and load testing as part of the Masters in DevOps program. We use it to do performance testing of web apps in a CI/CD pipeline. k6 Cloud is a great tool, I love the fact that we can script the tests in JavaScript, and that the thresholds for pass/fail are flexible.

We wanted to make them aware of the real struggles, this was not a get to ‘Hello, world’ in the shortest amount of time. The challenges were based on real world scenarios. Not trivial changes that break a build.
