This month's Tooling Up! is... Contract Testing with Pact.
Tooling Up! keeps you up to date with the latest tools and practices in our industry. Join us for these informative sessions and live demos from expert practitioners, followed by Q&A.
Tooling Up! sessions are engineer-led demos and are not vendor product pitches. Each session will last around an hour.
Overgrown integrated tests are ruining people’s lives! They don’t fit the testing pyramid, waste development & testing time, slow down & block releases, increase maintenance effort, and are usually flaky. Even if you know it’s bad, you might not know a better way.
Contract testing intends to decouple codebases. Pact facilitates a workflow allowing testing & verification to happen on each side independently, ensuring that things can be deployed together. Join András Bubics—Lead Consultant at DiUS and Pact contract testing advocate - to understand how you can speed up dev & deploy and abolish end-to-end tests.
