What is the API Testing Dojo?
We know that testing software is very important. As our lives become more intertwined with software enabled devices, the more important testing becomes. Businesses understand the merit in testing to increase overall software quality, decrease the amount of bugs, save time and money, and ultimately to improve brand reputation. Yet, although software testing gains prominence, API testing remains an obscure, undervalued, and often misunderstood practice.
The API Testing Dojo is a space to learn and hone your skills in API testing. It's meant for developers of APIs, professional testers, and anyone else who might need to determine the efficacy of an Application Programming Interface or web service. It's organized into three main sections:
World of API Testing
This section is an introduction to the domain of API testing, why you should test in the first place, and the unique challenges and advantages facing anyone who wishes to master the art of testing APIs.
The Best Practices area is dedicated to describing API testing methods and techniques that have a good track record and will improve your testing. It has two levels — white belt for beginners, and black belt for more advanced practitioners.
The Testing Katas lets you assess your API testing prowess and sharpen your skills. The Katas have two diffculty levels to accomodate both new and experienced testers. This Dojo section provides opportunities for hands-on, practical training.
**Everything in the API Testing Dojo is tool agnostic, so you'll be able to apply everything you learn here to any API testing tool.
