Python for Testers: Testing RESTful APIs

Tuesday, April 21, 2020 - 8:30am to 4:30pm

Odds are you have REST APIs in your organization, connecting different services, front ends, and back ends—and it’s a fair chance you have to test them as well. There are commercial and free tools out there that allow you to construct your own REST API calls, but the drawback of using any such tool is that inherently it will limit you in its application, and some of them with the added licence cost to boot. But REST APIs are easy to work with, and combined with the simplicity and strength of Python, you can quickly get started writing your own automated checks. Learn how simple it is to...

Using Heuristics to Test and Solve Problems

Tuesday, April 21, 2020 - 8:30am to 4:30pm

In the fast-moving world of agile and DevOps, smart testers use heuristics to identify focus areas and quick-start their test ideas. Variously defined as “fallible methods for solving problems” or “rules of thumb,” heuristics are essential tools for thinking agile test practitioners. When you construct a test around a model like “follow the money,” you are working with a heuristic that can be useful in some contexts but irrelevant or even detrimental in others. A key to using heuristics successfully is to do so consciously. If you aren’t aware that you’re using a heuristic model, it can...
