How to use the Source Code for the Book Automating and Testing a REST API

TLDR; download the source from github, open in IntelliJ and amend the IP address, username and password of the VM installed admin user.

I recently realised that I didn’t have a video showing how to download and use the source code for the book Automating and Testing a REST API

Rectified. Now I do.

How to use Test Practice Pages and Games from Evil Tester

TLDR; download the .jar from github, run from the command line, visit localhost:4567, navigate, play and test.

I have written a lot of apps and games over the years to support my training workshops. Most have been hosted on my web sites. Now you can download them all in one easy to use .jar file.

How to install cURL on Windows

TLDR; cURL requires an install on Windows, but it isn’t always easy unless you use a one-click installer or Chocolatey.

I remember cURL being easier to install than it currently seems to be. I’ve had a few questions from people working through my book “Automating and Testing a REST API” on who were experiencing difficulties installing cURL on Windows. I documented a few different approaches.

TLDR; The Tester in me was not satisfied by the TDD of FizzBuzz so I expanded the coverage with some simple acceptance testing modeled by automated @Test methods.

Previously on “Testers TDD” I created a version of FizzBuzz using TDD we now move on to the Acceptance Testing of FizzBuzz, but do we need to?

TLDR; Four JUnit @Test methods to create a FizzBuzz solution using Test Driven Development (TDD) with Java Junit.

A practice exploratory testing session - javascript button game

TLDR; Do you practice your testing? One way involves picking a random game and exploiting it.

I decided to record, with commentary, one of my testing practice sessions.

If this proves useful to people then I’ll record more.
