A single defect in web services, especially on a low level, can have a wide impact on all products and lead to a potential disaster in production. To prevent this, QA teams must use a set of approaches to test services and API’s and ensure adequate coverage. API automation can save us time and nerves when it is done right. However, it can make us miserable when there is no understanding of where to start your automation adventures.

While developers use a super-powerful combination of Mocha and Frisby frameworks to support Behavior Driven Development (BDD), this is still often neglected by the testing community. This small team of two has decided to counteract this imbalance.  When they began, Mila already had strong experience as a developer leveraging this framework, and Olga was able to work alongside Mila to learn the framework from the ground up. This presentation will demonstrate  how you too can learn testing frameworks with only a sense of curiosity as your starting point.  Through a lively experience report showcasing how they implemented ideas will allow you to find the courage to pair with your own developers on such a journey. While you can read the documentation on your own, the tips and techniques Mila and Olga will discuss can help you speed past some of the most common pitfalls.

We will share:

The true story of a team using API test automation to rally from days of painful testing to completing their tests within one day.

●      Why is API automation so important and when should we start implementing it?

●      Discover main pitfalls or downsides of API automation.

●      Key features of testing frameworks: Jasmine & Mocha in conjunction with Frisby.
