Talk #1: Shaking Up the Testing Pyramid: The Rise of Modern End-to-End Testing Tools (Marc Mengler and Daniel Draper)

Traditional testing pyramids have had a good run, but it’s time to question if unit tests should still hold the majority. With the advent of cutting-edge end-to-end testing tools like CypressJS, Playwright, and others, we’re seeing a shift in the landscape. Our meetup will kick off with a deep-dive into the advantages and limitations of the traditional testing pyramid. We’ll discuss why unit tests are valued, but also why they can sometimes leave us hanging when it comes to real-world scenarios.
Then, we’ll switch gears and explore the brave new world of modern end-to-end testing. We’ll get up close and personal with tools like CypressJS and Playwright, making testing more reliable and reflective of user experiences. We’ll also tackle the challenges that come with these new tools – after all, no testing approach is one-size-fits-all. Whether you’re a seasoned tester, a developer, or just someone who’s curious about the future of testing, we’re sure you’ll find something of interest.
