4 minimal UI tweaks we did to dramatically improve our trial conversion rate.

The goal of any Saas Application is to convert as many trials as possible to paid customers. To improve your application, what do you absolutely need? Feedback.

Why we think remote work is the new coming trend in digital companies.

The world population has grown by 30% since 1990, going from 5 to 7 billions people.

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

OctoPerf, our Cloud load testing tool, is made using massively open-source technologies. Because sharing is caring, this blog is a way for us to share how we made it.

We are proud to announce the opening of our Tech Blog. We really wanted to have a place to share technical thoughts openly. Why so open? Sharing technical stuff on our platform is like releaving secrets about how we built OctoPerf, our SaaS load testing tool. OctoPerf wouldn’t exist without the open-source community. We are widely using open-source technologies to build better software. It would be unfair to keep all the great things we have done with open-source technologies just for us.
