"JSON Schemas are your True Testing Friend" Gleb Bahmutov (@bahmutov (https://twitter.com/bahmutov))

In our company we have a lot of data flowing from the user’s applications (and we are backwards compatible) to the API, then this data is displayed in the web dashboard. How do we avoid accidentally breaking API contracts, while adding new features? We have started using json-schema convention and wrote a few tools around it to lock down our API protocols. Now we have full confidence in our tests, and major refactorings and releases happen without hiccups. Bonus: our tests are realistic, elegant and easy to understand.

Gleb is a JavaScript developer, image processing expert (PhD in computer vision from Purdue University), and software quality fanatic (his blog (http://glebbahmutov.com/blog/) is full of passionate screeds). During the day Gleb is making the web a better place as VP of Engineering at Cypress.io. You can follow him and his work on twitter, and find the slides from conference presentations at https://slides.com/bahmutov.
