Using a profiler for ad-hoc analysis is great, but managing performance over time requires that you continuously check your code's behavior and get immediate feedback to avoid regressions.
The best strategy is to manage performance on a day-to-day basis during development and testing, but also on your staging and production servers. Integrating a profiling technology like Blackfire into your continuous integration/deployment workflow is key to success and one of the main selling points of Blackfire.
Join this webinar for a high-level overview on how to use Blackfire's performance automation testing features. This session is best suited for people with a technical background who will be using Blackfire to profile PHP code wants to learn more about performance testing automation.
