The way we develop & operate software is changing & performance engineering should change too to remain relevant. It is not happening the first time in history performance engineering has a long history that can be traced at least to 1960s & we will discuss what changes we had in the past, what trends exist now, & how performance testing (and performance engineering in general) should adjust to agile / DevOps / Cloud /AI / etc. It is changing as we speak, so no exact recipes but trends are pretty clear & we will discuss what skills performance engineers need to remain in business.
