Learn how important API testing is in microservices and the Internet of Things.
- [Instructor] A lot of work and thought has been going…into using microservices as the architectural framework…for many applications.…We also hear a lot about the Internet of Things…and smart devices of every sort…are becoming more and more common.…We have devices ranging from smart light bulbs…to smart refrigerators and TVs and everything in between.…This course has laid out a foundation for thinking…about API testing and has given you the mental tools…that you need for this.…The truth is, if you've been following along with this,…you're well prepared for testing microservices…and the Internet of Things.…Take microservices, for example, they're API-driven.…
I mean, think about it,…if we use microservices architecture,…we're breaking applications up into many small services.…So we have one piece over that does something,…a piece over there that does something,…a piece over here,…and each piece has its own little task.…But these services need to be able to talk to each other.…And how do they do that?…Through APIs, of course.…
