During this talk you will learn how microservice interconnectivity layers (a.k.a. edges) should be tested. There is a fundamental flaw in existing testing practices, which carries major risks to microservice architectures.
Rand and Nikhil will share a solution in which the provider microservice ships with an intelligent fake that expresses the provider's behaviors. The consumer microservice uses the fake to exercise its non-vanilla interactions with the provider in unit testing.
