About the REST API test
This REST API test will help you identify intermediate REST practitioners who can build and maintain scalable and efficient APIs. Implications for a strong API are significant and can be a difference-maker for successful web development.
This REST API test understands strong and correct verbs as the foundation for solid REST API development. This hiring test explores appropriate verbs in a variety of contexts, including how the choice of a verb affects request types and request components.
When constructing a RESTful API for a business, it’s critical that your requests are structured in such a way that allows the server to remain scalable, without the need to increase the version of the API just to add a new feature. This screening test includes real-world scenarios and asks candidates questions about optimal requests using paths, data, headers, and bodies for different fact patterns and complications.
When consuming a RESTful API, it’s equally important that the server continues to function as expected when sending a given request, even if there are new features added to the same server. This hiring test allows candidates to demonstrate mastery through questions on HTTP response codes, dealing with errors and security considerations.
Candidates who score well on this test will demonstrate their knowledge on all things documentation. A skilled REST API practitioner helpfully and skillful documents requests, responses, security, and server-related matters. This hiring test covers these topics and more.
