TestBash Manchester 2018: Have Some Cake With Your Frosting: Testing Both API and UI Layers Workshop Resources


(Hilary) #1

Phew that’s a title!
I wanted to post here resources for the workshop “Have Some Cake With Your Frosting: Testing Both The API and UI Layers”. As well as have a place to answer questions from attendees of that workshop as you go to apply what we covered in your work!
In the future I’ll be writing up a blog post for folks to use the Docker image to do their own testing etc.
I’d also appreciate any feedback on this workshop, as I’ll be giving it again in January.

Here is the notes and prereqs page: https://docs.google.com/document/d/10seM_xROjPbQQq_URYDOjooBE65YOgx-YlahimBmc84/edit?usp=sharing
