Practical API Testing – by Andy Griffin

Many members of the IT community are just gaining experience testing with web API’s. Testing API’s can be intimidating compared to those comfortable GUI’s, but the world of requests and responses is full of opportunities. Perhaps your team isn’t sure where API testing fits into your SDLC or your organization doesn’t believe API’s should be tested directly at all. Even if you have no idea what API even stands for or how to being to approach testing, we will address those questions in this session. Those in attendance will be provided with an overview on how your team should approach API testing as part of your test strategy. We will also provide working examples on interacting with services via automation testing.
