E2E testing with Cypress

  • Holiday Inn Gent Expo Maaltekouter 3 9051 Gent Belgium (map)


We all want to consistently ship quality software. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by end-to-end (E2E) testing our application to simulates the real user actions. However, 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 hands-on session, we’ll dive deep into using Cypress, an open-source tool that enables us to easily and beautifully write flake-free, reliable, deterministic E2E tests for our web applications.
