Workshop: Testing RESTful APIs in Python with requests

For those of you looking to gain some experience working with requests, here are all the materials from a workshop I've created and delivered multiple times to good reviews. Feel free to use, share and adapt these materials as you see fit.

Setting up your system

  1. Make sure you have a working Python 3 installation. Get it from here if you haven't got that already.
  2. Download and unzip or clone this project
  3. From the project root, run pip install -r requirements.txt to install the necessary dependencies

What API is used for the exercises?

The exercises use the API, so make sure that it's up and that you are allowed to access it.


The .pptx/.pdf/.odp file in the root folder contains all slides from the workshop. Again, feel free to use, share and adapt them to fit your own requirements.

Comments? Saying thanks?

I'd rather have you deliver the workshop instead...

Sure, I'd love to. Again, send me an email and I'll be happy to discuss options. In house or at your conference, I'm sure we can work something out.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
