Full-Circle Testing With Cypress
Top Content
Cypress has taken the world by storm by brining an easy to use tool for end to end testing. It’s capabilities have proven to be be useful for creating stable tests for frontend applications. But end to end testing is just a small part of testing efforts. What about your API? What about your components? Well, in my talk I would like to show you how we can start with end-to-end tests, go deeper with component testing and then move up to testing our API, circ

Tiny Tests, Large Results
Yes, Big things do come in small packages. For example, isn’t a unit test’s speed, feedback, and reliability fantastic? Did you know we can also have fast, focused, and reliable feedback from our functional e2e tests? Atomic e2e tests are those that are targeted and focused. They’re tiny in size but large in their impact. This tutorial will teach you how to create atomic e2e tests with several code examples. First, we will use to authenticate by setting a cookie. Instead of using a UI. Second, we will use to set a JSON Web Token for authentication. Join me, and let’s write tiny tests for large results.

Testing Web Applications with Playwright
Top Content
Testing is hard, testing takes time to learn and to write, and time is money. As developers we want to test. We know we should but we don't have time. So how can we get more developers to do testing? We can create better tools.Let me introduce you to Playwright - Reliable end-to-end cross browser testing for modern web apps, by Microsoft and fully open source. Playwright's codegen generates tests for you in JavaScript, TypeScript, Dot Net, Java or Python. Now you really have no excuses. It's time to play your tests wright.

A Medley of Frontend and Backend Performance Testing
In this talk, I want to introduce you to both frontend and backend performance testing and why a medley of these testing activities are needed to make sure that your website is performant. I'll also give a quick walkthrough as to how tools such as xk6-browser can help with running both protocol-level (how performance testing is normally run through concurrent interactions at the protocol layer) and browser-level tests (testing with real browsers to provide a more realistic performance test).By the end of this talk, you should be equipped with new knowledge regarding frontend and backend performance testing which you can apply to your work projects.

Testing Mail Service With Playwright
Top Content
We send emails to our users - account verification and newsletters. We allow the user to contact us by sending an email via inbuild form. Do we? Does the user receive an account verification email or exactly what notification they signed up for? We can cover this functionality as part of E2E tests: get an email and open it to check what is in it. We will need Playwright and a fake SMTP server to capture emails sent by the app.

Beyond Rest - Contract Testing in the Age of gRPC, Kafka and GraphQL
Modern distributed architectures are more complex than ever before, with a majority of companies operating multiple languages, protocols and architectural styles. This poses significant challenges for engineering teams increasingly asked to deliver more at speed. Whilst the practice of contract testing rose to prominence during the RESTful microservices boom to address similar challenges, the problem statement has evolved. In this talk, we'll discuss these new challenges and demonstrate how contract testing is still as relevant as it has ever been in helping to solve them.

Unit Testing Angular Applications
Angular offers many things out of the box, including various testing-related functionalities. This presentation will demonstrate how we can build on Angular's solid unit testing fundamentals and apply certain patterns that make testing easier. Topics covered include: test doubles, testing module pattern, harnesses, "recipes" on how to test some common cases, and more!

Delightful Integration Tests With Testcontainers
Top Content
Dockerized services are an excellent tool for creating repeatable, isolated environments ideal for integration tests. In this session, we'll look at the Testcontainers libraries which provide flexible and intuitive API for programmatically controlling lifecycle of your service dependencies in Docker containers. Running databases, Kafka, Elasticsearch, and even cloud technologies, straight from your test code ensures environment config is always up-to-date and consistent during local development and in CI pipelines.You’ll learn everything necessary to start adding powerful integration tests to your codebase without the headache of managing external service dependencies manually!

Automated Security Testing for JS Apps
Traditional security testing for JS apps has focused on the front-end, but actual security issues most often lie in the backing REST API. Join StackHawk co-founder Scott Gerlach for a quick overview of why you need to rethink how you test your JS apps and how StackHawk can help you find and fix security bugs fast.

Playwright Can Do This?
Guaranteeing that your application doesn't break while constantly shipping new features is tough. Obviously, with a continually growing app or site, you can't test everything manually all the time!Test automation and monitoring are crucial to avoiding shipping broken apps and sites. But what functionality should you test? When should you run your tests? And aren't complex test suites super slow?In this session, we'll get our hands on Playwright, the end-to-end testing framework, and learn how to automate headless browsers to ensure that you confidently ship new features.
