The expert webinar panel is taking attendees on a journey to ensure API quality with continuous testing through every stage of the API lifecycle, from development to testing, production and back. The all-star panel of SmartBear speakers includes Lorinda Brandon, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Testing and Performance Products; Michael Giller, Sales Engineer for SoapUI; Brian Hutchinson, Manager Pre-Sales Technical Support and John Lucania, Monitoring Tools Sales Engineer.

API monitoring is critical in the API lifecycle, allowing development, testing and operations teams to establish a consistent feedback loop through pre-deployment and post-deployment, injecting efficiency and collaboration every step of the way. Smoke tests, functional tests, performance and load tests as well as monitoring are all important elements in the API lifecycle to ensure quality. The webinar covers the evolution of a single SoapUI project, from one developer’s smoke test, to another tester’s functional and performance tests, to the operations team’s API monitor in AlertSite, spotlighting SmartBear’s unique integration between two of its industry-leading products.

In the process, the panel is providing essential tips for building an effective monitor for internal, external and third-party APIs as well as how to establish a robust feedback loop across the API lifecycle to ensure quick and easy root cause identification and fix deployment.

“Having a clear and productive feedback loop is essential at any stage of developing software, and that’s just as true for APIs as it is for other products,” said Lorinda Brandon. “Using a continuous testing methodology provides a way to align your tests to business requirements, pass them from Dev to Test to Ops, and use monitoring results to feed back into development. By having a complete loop from requirements to production and back again, you can ensure your API quality is on the competitive edge.”

SmartBear products support every step of the API lifecycle, including SoapUI Pro, the most used API testing tool in the world, loaded with advanced features not found in other test tools; LoadUI Pro, one of the most complete load testing solutions; and the industry-dominating AlertSite website performance monitoring tool.
