Cypress: Where Automated Web UI Testing Isn’t Just for QA Anymore

Brightcove 1355 N Scottsdale Road, Suite 150 Skysong 4, Scottsdale, az 85257 (map)

One of our local members and prolific public speaker Justin James will be speaking to us about automating web UI tests using

Here's a description of the talk from Justin:

Today’s fast-moving software delivery environment emphasizes pushing value to production as quickly as possible. “Value to production” implicitly requires high quality—low quality is of little value to anyone! —which means teams need to focus on being able to specify, build, test, and deploy software effectively and quickly. Acceptance testing historically been manually intensive efforts run by a dedicated QA department, resulting in a slower pace of production releases.

No longer do we have to make acceptance a manual effort that requires a dedicated QA department. With the release of Cypress, we have a new standard in front-end testing that allows every developer to create acceptance tests. Come learn how you can create fast, easy, and reliable test for anything that runs in a browser regardless of the front-end framework used.

You will walk away ready to end the era of “Developers don’t write acceptance tests” and start writing acceptance tests for all of your projects.
