Adding a Second Pair of Eyes with Visual Testing - React Day NY 2021
Testing is a hard, but critical part of a development workflow. Without it, bugs can easily sneak through to production, costing us money or worse, costing our customers money! But setting up those tests can be a pain as you typically need to add very specific code to test very specific things, meaning, those tests are specifically fragile and easy to break with new code. Visual Testing is a way to cover your project using screenshots from your web or native app allowing you to perform real-world actions and make sure they behave as you expect. In this talk, we’ll walk through what visual testing is and how we can take advantage of Applitools Eyes visual testing powered by AI to make sure we’re maintaining a high level of quality of our apps.
