Getting Started WIth JMeter – YouTube

A very good introductory video from BlazeMeter, a performance & load testing cloud platform. I have been involved in some load testing for a multiple frond ends web application and I needed to use a free tool. Jmeter was recommended to me by a Java programmer I know at work and it turned out to be an excellent product. Although many people think its interface is not particularly user friendly, once you learn the basics and you are familiarised with the concept of Thread Group, Timer, Controller, Listener, etc, it is a great help in your testing. Furthermore, you can automatically record scripts either via HTTP Test Script Recorder option or by exporting the .jmx file created with the chrome plugin 

Jmeter home page and various resources to get started:
