We have recently started with a fresh season of our Webinar series TTTribecast and here we are with our next session.
TTTribeCast Webinar on “The Power of mocking APIs ” by Shivani Gaba
When is this happening?
30th August 2020 | Sunday | 06:00 PM-07:00 PM IST
Blocked because the API you depend on doesn’t exist yet or isn’t completely ready? Facing trouble to test various scenarios due to a lack of control over third-party APIs? Struggling to test failure cases like receiving an invalid response, 5XX errors, and so on? Having flaky tests due to slow API responses?
These are some very common problems we encounter. We cannot rely on slow APIs, which provide a very narrow range of responses. So how can we test effectively in such situations? Is there any feasible solution available? Fortunately, there is: mocking of APIs.
In this session, I will explain how to mock APIs using Wiremock. With a real-life example application, we’ll explore how to handle complicated scenarios and form a testing strategy. Join this session to gain insights on how, when, and most importantly why we should mock APIs. Let’s find together how development and testing can benefit from mocks.
Remember, “If API testing is the king, mocking APIs is the queen!”
About the Speaker:
Shivani is a passionate QA Engineer who believes that knowledge sharing boosts up all engaged parties and increases their confidence. It was the summer of 2013 when Shivani and “testing” met each other the first time and are best friends since then. Holding rich experience in the testing domain, she currently works as Senior QA Engineer with XING (the largest business network in German-speaking countries). With hands-on in all layers of software testing ranging from UI(frontend), API and backend, functional, non-functional, mobile testing – API remains her all-time favorite. As a certified scrum master, working in an agile manner is always her approach. She believes in the idea of spreading her findings of any “new fancy stuff” she learns. She has worked with multiple international teams and brings forward the idea of the whole team contributing to quality. She’s always up for conversation over email, LinkedIn, Xing, Twitter or beer table 🙂
What is TTTribeCast?
Testing Community is amazing. The reach and diversity it has been even more amazing. And that’s why we think that the physical reach of The Test Tribe Community should not become the barrier between Knowledge Givers and Seekers.
TTTribeCast is the Webinar Series by The Test Tribe where any Tester from the World can take up the virtual stage and share his/her knowledge with our Tribe.
The format is simple. The speaker goes live, shares his/her knowledge on the decided topic followed by a quick Q&A through comments on Live Video.
Where can I watch this?
The Webinar would be hosted on Zoom. Zoom Meeting link would be shared over email close to Event Date.
We hope you all are as excited as we are. See you all at Live Hour.
Happy Learning! Happy Testing!
