Apache JMeter is an open source tool for load testing Java applications in both development and CI environments in order to ensure that sudden spikes in traffic won’t cause latency in production. But because load testing involves sending thousands of requests per minute in order to simulate real traffic, it can be difficult to parse outcomes and read patterns—especially for large organizations that test and deploy new code several times a day.

The more tools that your teams need to execute their workflows, the more friction and lost productivity there can be, especially if each tool requires a different CLI or set of APIs. Retool is a low-code platform that allows you to build internal web applications using a drag-and-drop interface. By integrating with a number of key backend databases and APIs, Retool enables you to create custom, centralized management tools to serve a wide range of employee-facing use cases.

A dark launch is a deployment strategy for testing new versions of a service in production. When running a dark launch, you deploy a new version of a service and route a copy of production traffic to it without returning responses to users. This lets you see how a new version of a service handles production load, watch for errors, and compare performance between the old and the new versions—without affecting users.

Template variables enable you to use tags to filter your Datadog dashboards to the hosts, containers, or services you need for faster troubleshooting. However, there are some cases where it may be difficult to use a standard set of template variables to aggregate all of the data you need without creating a complicated, difficult to manage set of variables. For example, you may use tag values that are a subset of another tag.

Single-page applications (SPAs) provide some significant benefits over multiple-page apps. For JavaScript developers using frameworks like React or Vue, they offer flexibility in moving application logic to the frontend, reducing the need for complex backend operations. For users, SPAs can provide a smooth experience with a highly interactive UI and fewer page loads. But, with increased sophistication, there are some tradeoffs.

In order to manage complex containerized applications, modern devops teams need to have deep visibility into the status of their Kubernetes resources. By listening directly to the Kubernetes API, the open source kube-state-metrics service generates key metrics about your Kubernetes objects, including pods, nodes, and deployments, which are essential for understanding the status and performance of your clusters.

Protecting your applications from abuse of functionality requires understanding which application features and workflows may be misused as well as the ability to quickly identify potential threats to your services. This visibility is particularly critical in cases where an adversary finds and exploits a vulnerability—such as inadequate authentication controls—to commit fraud.

Open source modules on the NPM ecosystem are undoubtedly awesome. However, they also represent an undeniable and massive risk, since you’re introducing someone else’s code into your system, often with little or no scrutiny. The wrong package can introduce critical vulnerabilities into your application, exposing your application and your user's data. This talk will use a sample application, Goof, which uses various vulnerable dependencies, which we will exploit as an attacker would. For each issue, we'll explain why it happened, show its impact, and—most importantly—learn how to avoid or fix it.
