Debugging HTTP API's Workshop

This Meetup is past

23 people went


Learn about a powerful set of tools used by professionals for debugging and communicating about HTTP Requests. First, we'll generate requests using Postman, a popular GUI based tool for building and organizing requests into convenient collections. Then we'll examine cURL and jq, two very powerful CLI utilities for interacting with HTTP and transforming JSON data.


Familiarity with the Command Line and basic knowledge of HTTP will help, but neither are necessarily required. The code we'll be working with isn't really a programming language so it should be approachable by people of any technical level.
