Enjoy getting your hands dirty!

Because I am from Brazil, sometimes I tend to translate English phrases literally to Portuguese! When I first saw this phrase “getting your hands dirty”, I quickly thought about gardening! Gardening really gets your hands dirty. Well, I love gardening but not getting my hands that dirty.


Well, what does “getting your hands dirty” have to do with performance testing?


HP LoadRunner and HP Performance Center (version 11.50) are both now available and the fun part is getting to learn all the new features! In order to do that, there are a few steps to get started.  You will need to get “your hands dirty”.


There is the download, the install, set a few configurations, bring your current tests over and see how it works! So my point here is, you can get your hands dirty and still ENJOY it!


Well, not only that, but I want to take a moment to share that we had more than 150 customers and partners participating in the beta version almost an year prior to the release and I will tell you, they really got their hands dirty!

They tested the product in all aspects and provided a great feedback in advance so we could have a very stable product release to you!


On top of that, we have many of the customers participating in a survey about HP LoadRunner 11.50. The results were amazing good and I would like to share with you some of my favorite quotes:
