Building a Python REST API Test Automation Framework
What you'll learn
- Build a custom REST API automation framework from the ground up.
- Leverage the power of PyTest to create and run automated scenarios.
- Follow best practices to design and implement a scalable and robust framework.
- Learn how to Dockerize the framework to make it easily distributable.
- Basic Python understanding.
- Python and Docker installation.
In this course you will learn how to build a REST API test automation framework from scratch. This course will skip the theory and focus on a hands-on experience to help you design and implement a scalable and robust solution.
You will be able to:
Exercise CRUD operations using Python's request library.
Create and run automated scenarios using PyTest.
Encapsulate functionality using PyTest Fixtures to reduce your code footprint.
Follow best practices to design and implement a scalable and robust framework.
Dockerize your framework to make it easily distributable.
Software Developer Engineers in Test (a.k.a SDET) are in demand. SDETs are software developers working within the Quality Assurance team. They are the ones responsible for developing tools to ease the implementation, tracking and execution of automated scenarios. These scenarios can be part of the Front-End (UI) or Backend (REST API, GraphQL, SQL, DBs, Data, etc...) automation efforts. Currently, there is a shortage of SDETs specializing in Backend automation. Most of them spend their time on Front-End automation using technologies such as Selenium, WebDriver or Cypress. That was the main motivation to design and teach this course. We want you to learn the skills and technologies required for a successful career as a Backend (REST API) SDET.
Who this course is for:
- QAs, SDETs, Developers and coding enthusiast interested in building REST API automation frameworks.
Software Engineer with a passion for quality assurance and automation. 15+ years of experience helping organizations achieve and improve Software Quality efforts to boost teams efficiency, productivity, transparency and accountability.
Passionate about identifying automation gaps and solving them. Solutions come in a lot of different flavors, all solutions work, all you have to do is identify which one delivers the biggest value.
