In many ways APIs are the glue of the internet. The modern internet is increasingly built on distributed architectures and companies that want to make their platforms extensible. APIs are a crucial part of these kind of business strategies. They are also challenging to design and test. By their very nature they are meant to be accessed programmatically and to expose underlying constructs in ways that are simple to use and understand. You might be comfortable with how to test manually or even with various types of test automation, but still not really know and understand how to effectively test an API.
In this talk I will introduce you to some API terminology and dive into some practical approaches and strategies that you can use as you get into API testing. We will look at a few actual examples and you will leave this talk with the grounding you need so that you can take the next steps in your API testing journey.
