TestBash World 2022: Panel Discussion - Talking About API Testing with Jaswanth Manigundan, Pricilla Bilavendran & Ali Haydar

In this session, Jenna Charlton will be joined by three testing experts to discuss all things API Testing:

  • Jaswanth Manigundan (@jaswanth) has been a very active member of the Ministry of Testing Community, from giving talks at previous TestBashes to being part of our themed weeks too. Jaswanth is a lead test automation engineer working as a part of the QE practice at Culture Amp led by the legendary Anne-Marie Charret.
  • Pricilla Bilavendran (@pricilla09) is an active community contributor through her blogs, webinars and workshops. Pricilla is from Malaysia and is a passionate test engineer with a decade of experience in Quality Assurance. For the past three years, she has been in a relationship with APIs and never stopped exploring and playing around with APIs.
  • Ali Haydar (@ahaydar) a senior software engineer, team leader and an AWS community builder is excited by solving real-world problems, mainly with technology (sometimes it starts operationally then gets automated). Ali does not know many things, but he does know how to learn them efficiently and rapidly.

We’ll use this Club thread to share resources mentioned during the session and answer any questions we don’t get to during the live session.
