Web Performance Load Tester 4

Web Performance Load Tester 4, the first push-button load testing software to generate loads from outside the network, from inside the cloud—a virtual network of servers spread across the globe. Using the cloud, Web Performance Load Tester 4 can simulate as many virtual users as you can dream up. Best of all, you can configure any test, simulate any load, choose any number of test machines …then run your test with the push of a button. You’ll save plenty of time. And even more money.

Agile Game Development with Scrum by Clinton Keith

Drawing from his own experience as developer and CTO in the game development industry, Keith Clinton has written a book that provides both an overall vision of the Agile and Scrum approaches combined with a detailed practice of these principles in the specific context of game software development. It gives therefore also a good introduction to the software practices of the gaming industry.
