Random Data tool
I was originally going to write about a API testing heuristic that I stumbled upon recently for this weeks blog series, but I'm not planning on doing any APi testing this week. So instead I'm going to write about a new tool/website that I recently discovered for generating random data of various types. TestSpicer provides a set of post/get api calls that will generate "Random" data for you. Need users name for a test account? Call the name endpoint. Need an image? There's a call for that. In Fact there are currently 19 different end points, many I won't use, but this week, I'll try a few and see if it helps me find some a bug by creating an account that I wouldn't.
