Testing web APIs

A session at Frontend Dev Conf'14

Wednesday 19th February, 2014

10:35am to 11:20am (MMT)

Web based APIs are everywhere these days and every company seems to want one. There are never-ending attempts in building tools that will make construction of these APIs easy. Yet there are far fewer for testing them. If you’re serious about building one and having other companies use it and depend on it, you better build it right.

This talk will explore some key ideas when it comes to API-testing, such as the API-algebra, concurrency maximization and dealing with state. It will cover some of tools and techniques available today in the Open Source world for JavaScript and Node.js. You’ll learn how to make this type of testing less of a pain and it will be applicable right away.
