One of the most important — but most ignored — practices for web developers is performing end-to-end testing on applications before they go live into production. You know: making sure they work like they’re supposed to. But testing can be tedious, and definitely not fun.

In this course, Brett Cassette will show you how you can test all layers of your application stack, simultaneously, with Cypress. When you use Cypress, it’s like having a robot that uses your app the way a real user would. Cypress reports if things work the way you designed them to — and if they don’t — every step of the way. And it’s fun.

After completing this course, you’ll be ready to apply the same E2E testing principles to your own applications. Stop leaning on your QA department (if it exists) to stress-test your application, and ship your app knowing it’s ready.

    What would make this course a 7 for you?

    Very interesting course. Could be great to have more info about helpers vs. command, exec command, use of describe, skip, integration with jira. Maybe could be a second part.

    What did you like about this course?

    Thanks Brett, it's a great course! I've been using cypress for a while now, but went through it in order to check if there's some parts I didn't quite get yet correctly, and as it turned out there were definitely a few! Now I'll optimise some of the testing architecture in few teams I worked with. Also wanted to check with you about the concept of PageObjects, what do you think about it? Cypress states that it's better to have a set of commands instead, But there are certainly cases when PageObjects are a valid thing to use and can provide an easy layer of interaction with UI. This part might also be a good to surface in this course for those new to Cypress and to e2e testing in general.

    Thanks again for the course, was very useful!

    Have a great day!
