Testing, the way it should be.
Cypress helps developers write automated tests for the web.

In december we had a very successful Cypress meetup. Now we come back and see what has changed in the meantime. Let's dive in again, but a bit deeper!


Tired of slow and undebuggable Selenium tests? Try out the closed beta of Cypress, the automated test runner for your end to end testing needs. It is easy to setup, runs very fast, makes debugging fun, and has a great API that results in maintainable Javascript test code. This workshop features experiments with backend mocking, Commands (reusable actions/assertions) and debugging.
