Talk: Automated accessibility testing with jest-axe and Lighthouse CI
In her 18 years in the software industry, Bonnie has discovered that she loves all things testing (how great is it when testing reveals exactly what you need to fix about your refactor or new feature?). She's particularly devoted to Test Driven Development for its emphasis on planning before coding.
