Testing the Front End, Back End, and Everything in Between

Add to calendar

Testers are always looking to gain confidence in their latest release while also saving resources. How is this possible when you need to test every component of the application and all of their interactions? For one, both the front end and back end of an application are often discussed independently with regard to their importance, but in order to guarantee success for your application, you must test both. Bria Grangard will discuss how to successfully implement a strategy for testing both the UI and API sides of your application. Learn how you can reuse work you’ve already completed, effectively test the critical components of your application, and save time, money, and effort. You will walk away with an end-to-end testing strategy for success and best practices for maximizing test coverage to share with your team.
