In the rapidly evolving digital landscape, APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) have become the cornerstone of software development, enabling seamless integration and communication between different systems and services. With the API industry witnessing significant transformations and growth, understanding and mastering API, REST, and Microservices testing is more crucial than ever for software testers and developers. Here, at Custommedia Academy, we recognize the importance of staying ahead in the game, and our API United – Certified API, REST & Microservices Tester with Postman (CARMT) course is designed to equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in this domain.

In 2024, the API (Application Programming Interface) landscape is evolving rapidly with several key trends that are shaping the future of software development and testing. Our course is intended to bridge the gap with current API trends:

  1. APIs as Products: There’s a growing trend where businesses offer APIs as products, similar to the Software-as-a-Service model. This approach allows businesses to monetize the services they provide through APIs, with an increasing number of organizations adopting this model.
  2. Rise in Partner and Third-Party APIs: The usage of partner-facing and third-party APIs is expected to grow significantly. This trend is related to the increase in API products, as more companies use external APIs for various functions, from authentication to payments, opening new opportunities in the API economy.
  3. Developer Experience (DX): The focus on creating a seamless developer experience is becoming more crucial. The API space is becoming increasingly competitive, and offering a good DX can help companies stand out. This includes developer-friendly API design, easy onboarding, and addressing common developer challenges.
  4. Emergence of Newer API Architectures: While REST APIs remain popular, there’s a shift towards newer architectures like GraphQL, AsyncAPI, and gRPC. These newer architectures are growing in familiarity and use, often in combination with REST APIs to maximize efficiency.
  5. Integration of AI/ML in APIs: Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are increasingly being integrated into the API industry. Technologies like computer vision, facial recognition, and natural language processing are being offered through APIs, making it easier for companies to include advanced AI/ML features in their applications.
  6. The Modern API Stack: The demand for modern API stacks that support the latest technologies and standards, such as REST and GraphQL, is on the rise. This includes supporting containerization and integration with Kubernetes for scalable and reliable API management.
