    During the session we discussed:


    1. Meticulously sequenced learning

    Is this meant to go under APM or PPM? If the latter, please move to the right group to get the correct audience.

    Thanks Jonathon for the clarification. When I responded, this was a blank discussion,message at the time so was hard to figure out what it was. This is a great topic near and dear to many of us and I look forward to your future posts

    Until the Blazemeter community is established Performance Engineering will be best fit with the APM product line as I covered how to use CA APM and APM Mobile to 'Shift Right' to validate real customer usage with Performance Engineering.

    Nice to see PE getting some internal recognition. Should definitely be closely tied to APM.
