In this webinar — hosted by Sumeet Mandloi, Engineering Director @ Dow Jones (Wall Street Journal), and Eran Barlev (Sr. Customer Success Engineer @ Applitools) — you’ll learn how you can easily avoid front-end bugs and visual regressions, as well as substantially increase coverage, by adding automated visual testing to your existing automated test suite.
In addition, Mr. Mandloi shared real-life tips on how to run automated visual testing at scale, with implementation examples from Dow Jones.

In those days, there was a fairly robust ecosystem of open-source and commercial tools helping developers manage applications from a functional standpoint, but the process of testing, monitoring, and managing user experience was either completely manual or totally absent from the development cycle. UI issues often went unnoticed until discovered in production by customers. Not an ideal situation for anyone, as it led to slower development times and a poorer overall application experience.
