Consumer Driven Contracts - Mean what you say and say what you mean - Rob Crowley

A session at DDD Perth 2016

Saturday 27th August, 2016

10:05am to 10:50am (WST)

Rob Crowley @robdcrowley

The API economy is here and it's fuelling disruption in many established industries. In response to this. many companies are looking to increase their agility through breaking down legacy monoliths into discrete services focused around specific business capabilities. While this approach has many advantages, there are potential pitfalls awaiting the unwary. The number of integration points between these distributed components is greatly increased. Considering such an architecture, a naïve approach could be to simply continue to apply traditional integration testing techniques as this can lead to spiralling cost of ownership through brittle test suites. What can we do to mitigate this risk while still giving us the confidence that the various services will work cohesively?
In this session we will explore using consumer driven contacts, specifically Pact, to solve this problem and share some lessons learnt from the trenches through leveraging them as part of our API journey at Bankwest.
