Software Quality Matters blog: Five API Development & Testing Trends

April 30, 2017 Comments Off on Software Quality Matters blog: Five API Development & Testing Trends

SmartBear has just published an article that I wrote about five widespread development and testing changes that are dramatically disrupting the ways that APIs are being evaluated prior to being placed into production.

In a nutshell, these trends are:

  1. Business-driven API design and development.
  2. Agile methodologies
  3. Test automation
  4. API complexity outstripping testing capabilities
  5. New dangers for siloed testing

The process of designing, developing, testing, and deploying software – including mission-critical APIs – is very different today than it was even just a few years ago. This transformation has been driven by advances in DevOps, Agile methodologies, and Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery.

Simply making sense of all these new techniques can be a bit intimidating, so I’m glad that my colleague Chris Riley has authored a very useful guide that explains how all of these moving parts fit together. You can download a copy for yourself here.
