Training of JMeter Performance Testing and Selenium with Pragmatic Test Labs has been one of the very good learning experiences I had so far. Janesh and his team holds very good knowledge of JMeter and also his training was structured very well which helped me not only understand all the important concepts of JMeter but also helped me with my project needs along with the training. This has made my training worthwhile. I completely recommend the training if you are looking for Performance Testing Skills upgrade! I would also like to specially add that Janesh’s subsequent consultation and training of two of my testers in Selenium paved way for me to build my very own company “Skiva Solutions Pty. Ltd”.
