Testing in the Cloud From All Four Corners of the World!
This is a workshop for those of you that have done some sort of scripting or automation before. It’s a workshop where we’ll write a simple test agent using Python for sending traffic to a centralized REST API. You’ll follow up by creating 10,000 items of random test objects for offline test data. You’ll spin up server instances in the AWS cloud using Python. And finally, to top it all off, you’ll deploy your test agent and test data in cloud instances spread out over the four corners of the world, all of them generating simultaneous test traffic toward a single REST API where you’ll all collectively in the workshop will work together to achieve a consistent and intense traffic load for the REST API under test.
Laptop Required: Students must bring their laptops to connect to the external training environment. As a participant, you are expected to have some experience in automation, scripting, or working with Python. You should also be comfortable using a terminal, connecting to remote servers using ssh and ssh-keys. The instructor is very happy to answer questions or any hesitation you might have about taking the tutorial.
Laptop Technical Requirements: A browser (Chrome, Firefox, or Edge), access to port 6901. If you can use ssh (port 22), that is a bonus but not a hard requirement. We will send you instructions on how to connect to your machine will be sent out a week before the workshop. You MUST verify that you can access the training environment before the workshop.
