How We Automated Testing, Got Rid of QA Engineers, And Survived - Online Meetup

Testing and life through critical thinking and creativity.

Oleksandr Tryshchenko, Senior JavaScript Developer at Relay42

During this talk, I’ll share with you the honest story behind the front-end transformation, which we’ve done in Relay42. In particular, we’ll cover the following:

  • How we found our balance between unit, integration, and e2e tests.
  • What to test
  • Perspective on reasons why you can’t cover everything with one single category of tests.
  • Why doesn’t the pyramid of testing work for many teams?
  • How to deal with bad coverage and iteratively improve it.
  • What we do with regression and releases
  • Tools, libraries, and workflows which help you to improve the code quality
