About this event

This talk introduces a new open source tool which can be leveraged to manage mocked API services. Discover how it can record and playback API interactions so that your UI tests can run as smoothly as possible and focus on what really matters, your application. I’ll cover the tool’s inception, its journey to the open source community, how it can be used, and the overall time reductions for some of our most basic network interactions.
