If you’re going to be in the Boston area on September 12, and would like to learn how to deliver high quality APIs by applying robust functional, performance, and security tests, be sure to check out the special training course that will take place during the SmartBear Connect user conference.

This all-day class – which is usually only available for private organizations – will be delivered by SmartBear’s Mike Giller using a significant subset of the training materials WiseClouds presents during private sessions. Mike will discuss:

  • The ReadyAPI Platform
  • Establishing Connectivity to your APIs
  • Developing Functional Tests
  • Validating API Responses with Assertions
  • Data-Driven Testing & Programmatic Test Control
  • Performance Testing & Virtualization
  • Best Practices for ReadyAPI

Along with increasing your skill levels, attending this class will prepare you for the optional SoapUI certification exam. And to make things even more interesting, there will be additional tracks and events dedicated to the other major components in SmartBear’s far-reaching product portfolio.

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.
