The machine-to-machine communications APIs enable are so important that the literature and contention around REST have multiplied in the following years. Several principles of successful REST APIs have emerged, though; a dozen of the most important follow.
Functional testing is great for finding some types of problems. But using that technique alone is a bit like volunteering to put blinders on to other risks.
How do we test the product to find problems that only show up when all the pieces are combined and in the right place?
While API performance is crucial for success, what we often see during the API delivery lifecycle is that in an absence of additional resources during development, performance problems are often pushed aside until the very end of a project. The goal of these eBook is to provide practical advice
Join Performance Monitoring Expert Priyanka Tiwari and API Quality Nut Paul Bruce as they deep-dive into what the data says about the impacts of poor performance for both API providers and those who use these APIs.
Do you have an API strategy? If not, you still deal with lots of APIs. How do you make sure that your implementation in code aligns with your intended design? How do you speed up your build process to get those awesome API designs out the door without com
We testers split work into "manual" and "automated" testing. But hands-on testing and using tools feed into each other. Let's take a closer look at how manual testing and testing with tools braid together.
