Head of Open Source at BrowserStack

Atomic Talk Title: How to test components – It doesn’t need to all be E2E tests.

Not all tests need to be end to end, there are times when you can load a browser and just check the components are working properly and then have more targeted E2E that are less likely to be flakey!
In this talk, David will show you how simple component tests either using front-end frameworks or using WebComponent can improve the speed of your test suite and will lead to a lot less flake.

Talk Takeaways

  • How to think about doing more than E2E tests with your browser.
  • Focus on the quality of the test, not the quantity.
