Consumer-Driven Contract Testing

Setting up and running integration and end-to-end tests in highly distributed environments is a challenging task. Consumer-driven contract testing (CDCT) is a powerful and flexible approach to verify that components in distributed systems can communicate without issues at all times. With the shift towards distributed and microservices-based software, CDCT is quickly becoming an indispensable technique for software development teams.


What will you learn?

  • Common problems with integration and end-to-end testing in highly distributed systems
  • Consumer-driven contract testing
  • Pact and the Pact ecosystem
  • Writing CDCT tests using Pact
  • Using the Pact Broker for efficient contract management and distribution
  • Integrating CDCT in your CI/CD pipeline
  • Using bidirectional contract testing for easier contract testing adoption

 

Who should attend?

  • Software development teams looking for a way to deal with challenges in testing and deploying highly distributed software systems.
  • Developers and testers looking to expand their API testing capabilities with contract testing.
  • Stay ahead of the technology curve
  • Remain relevant with the latest technology training and experience

Frequently asked questions
  • Can I pay for the course in instalments?

    Open or Close

    Yes. An invoice detailing the instalment terms will be sent to you after you register for this course.

    We try to accommodate everyone’s schedule, however, the course generally runs from 3pm to 6:30pm on weekdays.


    Ad hoc sessions with the instructor can also be booked by arrangement.


  • Do I need any programming experience?

    Open or Close

    Some prior exposure to an object-oriented programming language is required. Inspired Testing offers an Introduction to Programming course (LINK) that is an excellent preparation to this course.


  • Do I need any special equipment or software?

    Open or Close

    You do not need any special equipment, however, an external mouse and a second screen will be helpful.


    This course only uses freely available and open source software, so no additional investment is required. Detailed instructions for installing this software and preparing your system for the course will be sent to you well in advance.


  • Will the training sessions be recorded?

    Open or Close

    Yes, each session is recorded and made available to you afterwards. If you have a problem with you being recorded, we can make arrangements so that everybody is comfortable to attend and participate in the course.


  • Will I need to write an exam?

    Open or Close

    Practical exercises are a big part of this course, both during the sessions as well as take-home exercises in between sessions. At the end of the course, you will be required to complete a capstone assignment which assesses your grasp of everything that has been covered in the sessions. No theory questions will be asked.


  • Will we have FUN in this course?

    Open or Close

    Yes, indeed this is the intention. Our trainers are not only excellent practitioners in their field, they also have extensive experience in transferring their experience and knowledge to others in a pleasant and comfortable manner. They also enjoy sharing many amusing and illuminating anecdotes from their careers to-date.


  • What tools and languages will we use in the course?

    Open or Close

    The course covers both low-code API testing tools (Postman) as well as API testing libraries in code. Depending on the language used in the course, this can be REST Assured (Java), RestSharp (C#), requests (Python), or another library if that better fits the learning requirements. You will also be using API mocking libraries such as WireMock (for Java) or responses (for Python) and consumer-driven contract testing tools (Pact) extensively in this course.


  • What other courses do you offer?

    Open or Close

    The Inspired Testing Academy offers a range of courses that cover everything a modern tester, test automation engineer or software developer needs to know about testing and test automation. Feel free to have a look here to browse our course catalogue.
