End-to-end Testing With A Real Browser

In this session, we will discuss end-to-end browser testing which helps us create rock-solid web apps. It is particularly important, since you can validate certain website behavior with it, which unit tests or integration tests will never catch.

Umar Hansa will explore:

  • Options for end-to-end browser testing in JavaScript.
  • Scraping data from other websites.
  • Outputting screenshots and video so you can watch recordings of your tests.
  • Some common testing pitfalls.
