No REST for women
There’s plenty of pages giving you links to API Software Testing. Right now in MoT 30 days API Testing Challenge, they are working on collating lots of these which is a great idea.
I wanted to contribute using a different approach. I decided to collate and amplify material created by female (and those identifying as female) software craftspeople. Here they are:
