We're super happy and excited to announce our next meetup event, Thursday, 4 April from 19:00, hosted by our friends at EveryMatrix!
For this edition, we'll be joined (again virtually) by a special guest, Amir Rustamzadeh core team member and senior engineer at Cypress.io (https://www.cypress.io/). Amir is a classically trained electrical engineer that just couldn't shake his urges of building for the web. He's experienced in developing mission-critical systems for the aerospace industry, and other large enterprises, but now enjoys his days working on Cypress, an open-source tool for building higher quality software for the web.
Amir will give an introduction to Cypress, the next generation front end testing tool built for the modern web that enables us to easily and beautifully write flake-free, reliable, deterministic E2E tests for our web applications. After the presentation, we'll have a short Q&A session with our guest, followed by an open discussion about testing or any other web development related topic.
The event will be hosted by our friends at EveryMatrix, in their headquarters near the historical center.
19:00 - 19:10 -- INTRO
19:10 - 20:00 -- Amir Rustamzadeh - Next-Generation Web Application End-to-End Testing with Cypress.io
We all want to consistently ship quality software. One of the best ways to do that is by end-to-end (E2E) testing our code as it simulates the real actions of our beloved users. Let’s be frank though, E2E testing is notoriously time-consuming, expensive, slow, and often flaky. Unfortunately, these issues lead to developers doing very little to no E2E testing, and taking solace in a plethora of unit-tests that cannot fully test the intended experience of users.
We can do better.
In this talk, we’ll explore Cypress, a tool that enables us to easily and beautifully write flake-free, reliable, deterministic E2E tests for our web applications. E2E tests will give us confidence in the software we ship down the wire.
20:00 - 21:00 -- Q&A and Open discussion
See you there and have an awesome day!
