Course API Testing and Automation
In modern software solutions, APIs are the glue between individual components and systems, essentially connecting the world.
Knowing how to approach testing APIs and API-driven systems is an indispensable skill for any modern software tester.
Unfortunately, a lot of teams often rely on writing inefficient tests through the graphical user interface when they would be better off leveraging APIs for their testing purposes, simply because they do not know where to start.
Our 'API Testing and Automation' course is designed to teach participants not only how to explore, test and write automation for individual APIs, but also how to use them to their advantage in designing, writing and executing integration and end-to-end tests more efficiently.
Through many hands-on exercises, participants will gain experience with a number of industry-standard API testing and automation tools, as well as get a deep understanding of how these fit into their overall software testing and automation strategy.
- APIs, how they work and where they are used
- Performing exploratory testing on APIs
- API automation using low-code tools
- API automation using code libraries
- API mocking for more efficient testing and automation
- Consumer-driven contract testing
- How to create and implement a solid API testing and automation strategy
The course covers the entire spectrum of API testing and automation, from understanding how APIs work and where they’re often used, to learning what to look for when testing APIs, to applying industry-standard tools and techniques including functional API automation (using low code tools as well as code libraries), API mocking and simulation and consumer-driven contract testing.
