Join us for a one-hour, introductory Postman learning session geared specifically for API testers. In this session, you'll learn how to test the functionality and reliability of an API.

Here's what we'll do in this session:

  • Send a request and inspect a response
  • Use a test snippet
  • Write custom tests
  • Extract data from one request to use in another with variables
  • Save and run tests as collections
  • Explain different types of tests that can be written in Postman
  • Run a test locally using the Postman Collection Runner


  • Create a Postman account, and then sign in.
  • Download and install the Postman desktop agent, which will enable you to use the web version of Postman that we use in Postman Intergalactic sessions.
  • Prior knowledge of JavaScript or another programming language is helpful.
