Cloud Testing

← Back to timetable


Testing in the Cloud from all Four Corners of the World!

This full-day workshop is tailored for individuals with a background in scripting or automation, focusing on cloud-based testing using Python. Participants will engage in hands-on activities to develop practical skills in creating and deploying test agents and data in a cloud environment.

The workshop will guide participants through the process of writing a simple test agent in Python to send traffic to a centralized REST API. Attendees will then create 10,000 random test objects for offline data testing and learn to spin up server instances in the AWS cloud using Python. The climax of the session involves deploying the test agent and data across cloud instances worldwide, aiming to generate simultaneous test traffic to a single REST API. This collective effort will test the REST API under a consistent and intense traffic load. The workshop is designed to be interactive and collaborative, fostering a hands-on learning experience.

What you’ll learn

From this session you will learn how to:

Create test agent using Python

Spin up server instances in the AWS cloud

Generate traffic load for a REST API under test

What you’ll need

Participants must bring their laptops to connect to the external training environment. You are expected to have some experience in automation, scripting, or working with Python and should also be comfortable using a terminal, connecting to remote servers using ssh and ssh-keys. The instructor is very happy to answer questions or any hesitation you might have about taking the workshop.

A browser (Chrome, Firefox, or Edge), access to port 6901. If you can use ssh (port 22), that is a bonus but not a hard requirement. We will send you instructions on how to connect to your machine will be sent out a week before the workshop. You MUST verify that you can access the training environment before the workshop.

Kristoffer Nordström is a test developer who has worked with telecommunications systems, distributed compilers, cloud technology, smartphone OS development, embedded systems, and much more. As a testing devotee and a member of test community, with his own company Kristoffer consults and teaches the course Python for Testers because he believes in tools-assisted sapient testing. Over the years he has seen the immense value of testers learning how to distill large amounts of information into the so-called “big picture,” and he advocates for learning the soft skills necessary to collaborate with the people making up the organization. Apart from being an avid software tester, Kristoffer is also a sci-fi reader, lamp maker, and craftsman.
