Title: Deconstructing the automation testing pyramid as we know it and the world of APIs
Abstract: Remember the first time that you were introduced to the notorious automation testing pyramid?
Unit tests as a foundation, have the broadest coverage. The next level comprises API/Service Layer Tests and fits somewhere in between UI and Unit tests in both complexity and scope. The highest level and smallest comprises the UI tests. It is at this level that we actually launch our application and execute E2E testing. While this sounds great in theory, this only happens when performing from a top-down approach.
If you only have the UI tests, how do you make the most of your API tests? In this talk, we will be deconstructing the automation testing pyramid as we know it, discussing how you can benefit from API testing, and taking your burning questions about API testing live.
