Receiving fast feedback is crucial for DevOps teams. In this workshop we are going to introduce a new tool that can be embedded in the Continuous Delivery processes of DevOps teams delivering web-apps.
When developing web-apps, UI testing is not what comes to mind first when thinking about fast feedback. With the rise of modern web-apps, where business logic often resides inside the front-end, this need for reliable tests is getting more and more important. You want to be able to automate your UI tests and monitor them so that the team has insight into the latest product status.
Traditional (UI) testing tools often lacked in the areas of stability, maintenance and speed. Slow tests, make for slow feedback. Since most web-frameworks are based on Selenium there is actually surprisingly little to choose from.
Cypress.io is approaching UI tests in a new way. Based on familiar open source frameworks, Cypress.io sets out to fix those pesky, flaky, frustrating tests. With a fresh view on the test development lifecycle, an architecture that is not based on Selenium and recently open sourced.
