So you wrote a bunch of great unit tests but your site is still broken? Maybe it’s time to start investing in a suite of end-to-end regression tests. In this talk we'll explore practical examples of developing automated tests using Selenium (via Splinter) and exploratory testing using Jupyter sessions.
This talk will start with a background on testing and quality assurance:
Automated vs. Exploratory
Goals of end-to-end testing
The next section will outline a layered approach for writing end-to-end tests with each step building on the last:
Before the final section, there will be a demo of the previous examples run against a live website.
The final section will recommend an approach to building tests against your own site:
Make your site testable
Allow “cheats” on your staging server
