Nordic.js 2017

Fjärde upplagan av Stockholms sötaste (sockervadd!) JavaScript-konferens – Nordic.js – gick av stapeln för drygt en vecka sedan.

Förra året huserades eventet på Münchenbryggeriet som låg centralt och hade bra faciliteter men begränsat med uppehållsytor i pauserna. I år hade de flyttat till större, aningens mindre centrala, lite sunkigare Nobelberget. Arrangörerna hade dock piffat med färg och form.

Även i år gick det även att delta på distans och se eventet via live-streaming.

Emulating services using HoverFly

What is HoverFly?

HoverFly is a service virtualization tool that can emulate other services by recording requests and responses and then playing them back. It’s set as a proxy between your system and the services you want to emulate.

That way you can for instance test your system without using real dependencies, which increases the reliability of the tests.

Capture sequence

When to use it

A service virtualization tool is often used as a complement or replacement for a mock or a stub. In my personal opinion, mocks work best when there are complex interactions with a few services and stubs are effective when there are simple
