A Bird's Eye View of Microservices Testing

Date and time:

19:00 28th July 2021


An increasing number of organizations are adopting microservice-based architectures to support software development and deployment. Leveraging microservices makes it easier to add, modify, and monitor system behavior with little to no service interruption. Microservices facilitate releasing software early, frequently, and continuously and are especially popular in DevOps teams. But how do microservices impact testing? Is there a holistic way to look at testing these types of architectures? Join Tariq King as he gives you a 10,000 foot view of what it takes to do full-stack microservices testing. Learn how test automation translates into the microservices world to ensure that you can take advantage of its benefits, while avoiding many of the common pitfalls. Whether you’re already using microservices or just curious about what they are all about, come and enjoy this bird’s eye view to see if you’ll want to dive deeper into this emerging area of testing.
