What is Postman?

Postman - a very popular tool that allows us to manipulate APIs (most notably REST), has a very useful role in the testing process.

With Postman, we can make REST API calls without writing any code, extremely easy and fast.

It supports all HTTP methods (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE...) and allows saving history of requests, making it convenient to reuse.

Once we've mastered Postman, we'll see that it's quite simple to call REST APIs.
