Development teams are increasingly choosing a microservices architecture in order to boost apps' agility, scalability, and maintainability. With this decision to switch to the modular software architecture — in which each service is a separate unit with its own logic and database that communicates with other units through APIs — comes the need for new testing strategies and new testing tools.

This presentation will provide an overview of the key microservices testing strategies, types of tests, & the best testing tools to support dev teams in accelerating application development.
