API Testing Made Easy With Postman

Application program interface (API) has become the connecting tissue that allows the exchange of data and logic between software products and different layers of an application (data layer, service layer, and presentation layer). Multiple independent systems can be integrated easily with the help of APIs and its specification. Testing these APIs before and/or after they are consummated can greatly improve the efficiency of your test strategy as a whole because the API layer directly touches both the data layer and presentation layer, it presents itself as a good candidate for continuous testing which also means applications can be delivered faster.

Postman is a tool that simplifies each step of the API lifecycle from design, testing, documentation, and mocking APIs to discovery. In this session, you will learn how to get started with API testing, automate your API test cases on the fly, run a collection of test suites, monitor APIs, and version control. You will also learn how you can use the new flow feature on Postman to your advantage which promotes codeless automation.

Oluwatomisin (Tomi) is a seasoned software test and automation specialist with over 5 years of experience in software testing. I have a background in Mathematics and later bagged a master of information technology. I enjoy learning more about new technologies as much as I love to teach others and share my experience with newbies in software testing. As a way of giving back, I recently started a free mentorship and training program for new testers and that has really helped in molding new talents for the testing industry. I am a Postman supernova and I love to share my experience on how I learned postman in the second week I started my career in software testing.
