Jan Meetup: Web App Testing & Advent of Code Recap

Capital Factory

We're back for an in-person presentation after a long hiatus.

Daniel Parker will talk about multiple methods and pitfalls of testing web apps including visual regression, component testing, and end-to-end. He'll cover several tools while primarily focusing on Playwright.

We'll also recap the 2022 Advent of Code - a set of programming puzzles released nightly during the month of December. We'll look at a sample puzzle and discuss some useful techniques. If you did any of the puzzles, this is a chance to talk about it with other participants.
