Another exciting evening at TechHub Swansea, where we have two talks from local speakers.

Talk title: AI, NLP, Big Data, Bridgend

About Thomas:
Thomas Guest works for Clinithink in Bridgend developing software which searches through the unstructured text buried in electronic medical records. In his spare time he enjoys running, puzzles and noodles.

About this session:
This talk provides a technical overview of the algorithms and technologies at the heart of Clinithink's software. There will be live demonstrations. We will show how a hybrid of classic language processing tools and modern search engine techniques can combine to support medical experts in making rapid and accurate decisions.

Talk title: Exploring APIs with Postman

About Viv:
Viv Richards is an independent QA consultant. In his spare time he enjoys teaching children to code as a CodeClub volunteer as well as bringing communities together to share skills and knowledge.

About this session:
In this session we will look at how Postman can help you both when exploratory testing against a real application as well as to start build up automated checks to create a basic API framework.

By pushing tests further down the stack you can often gain more confidence in the software you are trying to develop and release, and shorten the feedback loops in order to adapt to changes when things don't go quite to plan.

Join this session to learn what API testing is and get started testing APIs using Postman. Whether you're totally new to Postman or API testing or you've done a little, at the end of this session you will be armed with the knowledge and skills necessary to start to help you find bugs earlier in the development process, often before the UI has been created.

Takeaways:
• Learn what API testing is and why you should care
• Discover what Postman is and how to get started testing APIs with it
• Learn some tips and tricks to take your Postman API testing to the next level
