Bad Tests Running Wild: Concurrency, Test Data, and Low Human Interaction in Test Automation

Think running concurrent automated test scripts in a CI/CD pipeline is as easy as just clicking that run-in-parallel checkbox? If so, you’re likely in for a struggle. Join us to hear about data, threading, and low human interaction considerations that can help you be successful when parallelizing.

API Testing within CI/CD

API Testing has been a challenge for Testers and tools like Postman have made this task easier thanks to the manual creation of request collections. But how can we set up API automated tests using Postman and launch these tests in containers? Not only that but integrate them into our CI/CD pipelines.

In this workshop, you will explore 3 key points in automating API tests with usual tools like Postman: that is, the creation of automated tests from Postman, how to run your request collections and their automated tests using Docker as well as the appropriate containers for them and how API tests are integrated into a CI/CD pipeline in a simple way using GitlabCI.

How to fast generate your API Test with OpenAPI Tools and Rest-Assured

API testing is, nowadays, a common activity for any team. Some still use record-and-play or tools that provide an IDE because it accelerates the test creation at the beginning, but in the mid to long term, it does not scale. Most of them have reasons: lack of programming skill, patterns, or simply time to do it.

In this workshop, you will learn how to speed up the API test automation using Java and Rest-Assured while the OpenAPI tools will create all the standard code to deal with the HTTP requests.

The hunt for Bigfoot: A fully automated testing process (Spoiler Alert, it doesn't exist).

Fully automated testing is like Bigfoot. Everyone thinks they’ve seen it… But all they’ve seen is a blurry picture off in the woods. Automation has come a loooooong way, but you’ll always need some humans involved in your QA process.

Let’s discuss when to use automation, when to double down on manual testing, the top tools available today, and how to maximize your testing team’s strengths.
