DING DING DING! It’s time for a colossal rematch between two of the hottest testing frameworks of 2022! Back in May, Cypress and Playwright squared off in an epic 10-round code battle where the audience judged the winner. Playwright arose victorious, winning seven of the rounds – but with some very slim margins.

Now, it’s time to jump back into the ring! Filip Hric will once again represent Cypress, and Andy Knight will return to defend Playwright’s champion title. In this rematch, Filip and Andy will go deeper than small coding snippets: they will go head-to-head with full test automation projects covering a live web app, competing for your votes judging which does it better. And the faceoff will be moderated by none other than Beth Marshall, the impartial but oh-so-inquisitive quality champion.

Will new features in Cypress 10 steal the thunder? Will Playwright’s test generation and tracing abilities send a final KO? Join us live on September 8 for the showdown of the year!
