# Testing with Mirage and Polly.js

We wanted to have a flexible testing setup that allowed for handling rapid changes in our frontend and give us the ability to test specific scenarios. We'll explain how we updated our testing infrastructure from Mirage only to one with both Mirage and Polly.js

# Component flavors

Once upon a time there was one type of component and one way to render them. In the 3.x development cycle, the pace of innovation (and subsequent implementation) in the domain of components has been tremendous. There are glimmer components, sparkles components, tagless components, named arguments, angle-bracket invocation and possibly other ways to define, implement and call what's increasingly (and arguably) becoming the framework's main building block. In my talk, I aim to give an overview of recent developments, what's to come and perhaps most importantly how you can leverage your components to maximize readability, scalability and usability. Hope to see you at the talk!

Food and drinks will be kindly provided by OTA Insight.
