WebUI Testing With Richard Wilde

by groupadmin8. June 2015 10:11

The Talk

Unit testing helps us when writing any sort of application, however we often we end up writing unit tests for small pieces of logic that don't really matter and sometimes miss out on the bigger picture. We tend to shy away from Web UI testing as the feedback loop is just too slow. In this presentation we will look at a toolset that gives us both end-to-end testing that aims to give us far faster feedback. Welcome to the CasperJS a navigation and testing utility written in JavaScript, which plays nicely alongside PhantomJs, a headless WebKit browser.
