API Test Planning Live!

Gil Zilberfeld

11:45-12:45 Wednesday 12th June

How do you come up with cases for your APIs? Is it enough to check they return the right status? No.

APIs are complex, so even a couple can cause us to be overwhelmed by the options. But options are good. We want the ideas, so we can prioritize based on our needs. We just need to understand our system, and come up with proper ones.

History has proven that the best way to come up with ideas is collaboration. So that’s what we’ll do.

This is an interactive session on API Test Planning. Given only two APIs (and a semi-sane moderator), we’ll come up with creative ways to test them.

Sound easy? APIs are complex. And in this session, we’ll see how much, and how to think of different aspects of APIs when testing.
