Workshop

API Testing & Automation

Summary

API testing is rapidly becoming an indispensable skill for any modern tester. But with so many tools and techniques available, where do you get started? In this half-day workshop, we’ll have a look at what to test for when you’re testing APIs, how to perform exploratory testing on an API as well as how to get started writing automation for (RESTful) APIs.
We’ll also see how exploratory testing and API automation fit into an overall testing strategy, and what other building blocks are worth exploring.

Topics Covered

  • What to test for when you’re testing APIs;
  • How to perform an exploratory testing session on an API;
  • Writing tests for APIs in Python;
  • Making your API tests part of a CI build;
  • Creating a well-rounded API testing and automation strategy

Learning Objectives

  • Understanding the different areas to explore when testing an API;
  • Learning where API development may go wrong and how to test for that;
  • Using different types of tools to test and write automation for APIs;
  • Placing exploratory testing and API automation in a broader testing context

Who Should Attend

This workshop is ideal for developers, testers and team leads who are looking to add API testing to their existing skill set. Some prior knowledge about APIs and the way they are used in modern, distributed systems is beneficial, but definitely not required.
