Kurzfassung Serverless computing allows software engineers to develop applications in the cloud without having to manage the infrastructure. The infrastructure is managed by the cloud provider. Therefore, software engineers treat the underlying infrastructure as a black box and focus on the business logic of the application. This lack of inside knowledge leads to an increased testing difficulty as applications tend to be dependent on the infrastructure and other applications running in the cloud environment. While isolated unit and functional testing is possible, integration testing is a challenge, as reliable results are often only achieved after deploying to the deployment environment because infrastructure specifics and other cloud services are only available in the actual cloud environment. This leads to a laborious development process. For this reason, this thesis deals with creating testing strategies for serverless edge computing to reduce feedback cycles and speed up development time. For evaluation, the developed testing strategies are applied to Lambda@Edge in AWS.
