Cypress.io: The serene solution to UI testing

Øystein Aadland

Lightning talk - in Norwegian

In this lightning talk I will show why Cypress.io is a solution that should be on top of your list when choosing a framework for UI testing.

Cypress.io is an open source Javascript based framework for setting up and running UI testing. It is hard to make UI tests that are repeatable and stable. Especially with todays UI solutions that rely on a lot of asynchronous calls. Even though it is hard it is even more important today to automate this testing since there is an ever-growing complexity of frontend web applications. Automation of testing is the only real solution to high quality software, because there is never enough time to do it manually.

Cypress.io makes UI testing more enjoyable when developing tests, and that is one of the most important features when getting your/you/us developers on board.
