At this meetup CharlestonJS is pleased to have Gleb Bahmutov a Distinguished Engineer at Cypress.io.
Talk Title: Visual Testing using Cypress
Visual testing is extremely effective at confirming the application works and looks the way it did previously, and that the new commits have not accidentally broken it. In this presentation, I will show how to do visual testing using Cypress test runner, both at the end-to-end and at the individual component levels. We will also consider the trade-offs of doing image diffing ourselves vs paying for a 3rd party service.
What is Cypress?
Cypress is a next generation front end testing tool built for the modern web. We address the key pain points developers and QA engineers face when testing modern applications.
