Leveraging Free, Open Source, and Low-Cost Tools for Back End Testing

Front-end GUI testing is a small slice of the QA pie. Much more goes on beyond the interface in the server, database, and API layers. Many testers are discouraged from really digging into the back-end to find the source of issues and uncover bugs that aren’t presented in the application’s GUI. Learn how to identify some areas of the back-end that are prime targets for low-effort, low-cost testing. Elysia shows how back-end testing does not need to be expensive by giving a real-world demo of back-end testing of popular web applications such as Google and Twitter using grep and tail, jmeter, SoapUI, and smart SQL queries. Join Elysia to learn some quick and easy ways to get started with back-end testing for true white-box testing. Finish with a Q & A session aimed at real-life challenges.
