Experience Labs (Live showcase of usage of FOSS tools)
Proposed by Liyas Thomas
No. of presenters: 2
Idea for Experience Lab:-
At our booth, we'll have two laptops set up:
- Laptop 1: Running a Product teaser video.
- Laptop 2: Featuring a live desktop app running Hoppscotch, open for audience interaction.
- When attendees approach our booth and express interest in Hoppscotch, we will provide them with a brief but informative overview of the features Hoppscotch offers.
- We'll also provide a bunch of API endpoints for participants to try out how Hoppscotch works.
- → https://echo.hoppscotch.io
- → https://pokeapi.co/api/v2
- → https://echo.hoppscotch.io/graphql
- Overview of Hoppscotch: We'll start by introducing Hoppscotch, explaining its purpose and significance in simplifying API development and testing.
- Support for REST, GraphQL, and Real-time Protocols: Attendees will learn about Hoppscotch's versatility, showcasing its ability to handle various API types, including REST, GraphQL, and real-time protocols.
- Team Collaboration: We'll highlight how Hoppscotch facilitates teamwork by allowing multiple users to collaborate efficiently within the same platform.
- Cookie Support: Attendees will discover how Hoppscotch handles cookies, which was not supported in the browser version.
- A quick overview of Built-in interceptors, Spotlight search, and context menus.
- Testing Collections and Environments via Hoppscotch CLI Mode: We'll demonstrate the power of Hoppscotch's Command Line Interface (CLI) for efficiently testing collections and environments. This can streamline API testing and automation.
- Overview of Self-Host Community and Enterprise Editions: We will explain the concept of self-hosting Hoppscotch, including both the Self-Hosted Community (SHC) and Self-Hosted Enterprise (SHE) editions, highlighting the benefits and use cases for each.
Game Setup (If allowed):
- Game name: “Hopp and Seek”
- Bingo Cards: These cards will be a 5x5 grid where instead of traditional numbers, we’ll fill the squares with Hoppscotch and API-related terms.
- Question Cards: We’ll prepare a set of API and Hoppscotch-related question cards. The answers to these questions on each card will be hidden in one square of the Bingo card.
- Any participant who marks the right answers on a bingo card to 5 questions from question cards within 1:30 minutes wins exclusive Hoppscotch merch.
