Cypress: Where Automated Web UI Testing Isn’t Just for QA Anymore


Today’s fast-moving software delivery environment emphasizes pushing value to production as quickly as possible. “Value to production” implicitly requires high quality—low quality is of little value to anyone! —which means teams need to focus on being able to specify, build, test, and deploy software effectively and quickly. Acceptance testing historically been manually intensive efforts run by a dedicated QA department, resulting in a slower pace of production releases. No longer do we have to make acceptance a manual effort that requires a dedicated QA department. With the release of Cypress, we have a new standard in front-end testing that allows every developer to create acceptance tests. Come learn how you can create fast, easy, and reliable test for anything that runs in a browser regardless of the front-end framework used. You will walk away ready to end the era of “Developers don’t write acceptance tests” and start writing acceptance tests for all of your projects.

Ultimate Presentation Formula for Nerds


As a techie, we need to be able to talk to more than just 1s and 0s. Talking to computers is great but we also need to be able to talk to humans and give an effective presentations if we want to be seen as the go to expert. Join me in this interactive session to get the critical techniques I used to grow from 0 talks to giving 200+ talks at over 75 events around the world. Public speaking just like talking is a skill that can be learned with the right training and mentorship. Being shy and introverted doesn't have to doom you to a life of only talking to computers even though it is really cool to talk to computers. You will walk away inspired to share your knowledge and be seen as the go to expert.
