Mission Impossible: Browser Testing with Cypress

As your web site or application grows in size and complexity, automated browser testing can you ensure that any changes you make don’t negatively impact the experience. However, setting them up isn’t always easy. In this session, Bekah Hawrot Weigel will show us how to get started using Cypress to build and run automated browser tests.

Mission Impossible: Testing with Cypress

We write tests to give us confidence that things won’t break and to save time. But it takes time to write tests. How does that save time? When you use the JavaScript testing framework Cypress, you’ve got the Swiss Army Knife of end-to-end testing. Cypress has bundled together the tools you need to get up and testing fast.

We’ll take a look at how to get started with Cypress, how to write reliable tests to give you confidence in your code, and how using Cypress enables you to get the mission accomplished.
