Testing APIs from imagination to implementation LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

You have heard of Web services and APIs. You know how to use Postman. You have even created a few API tests. But throughout your testing do you consider how API design affects the usability, extensibility, performance, and many other risks to your application? Or do you and the business leave it to those more technical to decide?

In this tutorial, we will discuss how to analyse and define APIs with both technical and business facing team members. You will also be introduced to, and trial, a set of tools and skills to help test APIs from the requirements phase through to implementation. As a group, we will explore:

- Why business expectations matter in how you develop your API and how to explore and question architectural decisions
- How to expand your test design to deeply explore an API
- How to model an already existing API platform which can drive the design and automation of a suite of checks

Many argue that the future of software is not new creations, but instead creating new value by building connections between existing solutions both internally and across organisations. To take advantage of these opportunities we will need to value APIs in a whole new light. Come join us in building that broader understanding of APIs and how they relate to your business and end user goals.
