Testing Strategies for Microservices

Add to calendar

Software development is trending toward building systems using small, autonomous, independently deployable services called microservices. Leveraging microservices makes it easier to add and modify system behavior with minimal or no service interruption. Because they facilitate releasing software early, frequently, and continuously, microservices are especially popular in DevOps. But how do microservices affect software testing and testability? Are there new testing challenges that arise from this paradigm? Or are these simply old challenges disguised as new ones? Join Tariq King as he describes the pros and cons of testing under the microservices architecture. Learn how to develop a microservices testing strategy that fits your project needs—and avoids common pitfalls and misunderstandings. Whether you're already using microservices or just considering making the shift, come and engage with Tariq as he brings clarity to testing in a microservices world.
