Workshop: Head-to-Head Web Testing: Part 1 with Cypress
- Filip Hric, Cypress Ambassador & Educator, Cypress
It is no secret that many teams struggle with automated functional UI testing – some to the point where it is completely abandoned – even though the UI is the most significant interface of the system. When it comes to mobile testing, the challenges are even greater as traditional testing tools are less mature, slower, and harder to operate.
In this session, we’ll review the main weaknesses of traditional approaches to UI testing, and how they negatively affect test stability, maintainability, coverage, execution speed, and overall ROI. We will then demonstrate how Visual AI – the innovative technology powering Applitools’ testing engine – can be applied to your existing pipeline to efficiently implement and maintain functional UI tests with a fraction of the effort while drastically increasing test coverage and reducing test execution time. We will also do a live coding session, where we will convert a traditional native mobile UI test into a Visual AI test in minutes, and execute it across dozens of devices in seconds using the Applitools Ultrafast Grid.
