Talk Description

In this live coding talk I will build an API testing framework in Python. We'll take it step-by-step - starting with the simplest, smallest thing that works. Then we'll identify the biggest impediment of the framework as it is and resolve it. Rinse and repeat a few times and before you know it, you have a powerful API testing framework without even having to write that many lines of code.

During my coding I will be narrating what I'm doing and what I'm thinking. What does this piece of code do? Why do we need it? How does it support my testing? That last question will be the main thread through this talk. How do you build a framework that supports you through all your activities as a tester? And that doesn't get in your way when you want to focus on testing, i.e. on the quality of our product? Because that to me is key: it's only at specific times I'm willing to deal with the tool as a tool, at all other times it should Just Work(TM).

What you’ll learn

By the end of this talk, you'll be able to:
