An anthology of QA horror stories from the past, and how to avoid such situations with TDD. When tests are built in from the beginning and not tacked on after features are built, fewer defects are created and development moves faster. JavaScript has all the tools required to cover your automated testing needs, and writing tests in the same language as your app is a no brainer. Jennifer will cover the tools available today and the logistics of merging your QA and dev teams.

Supplement :

Jennifer's talk includes three QA horror stories: Manual testing, Mystery tests, and "It works on my machine". She addresses these by showcasing automating testing tools (and doing a live demo of Cypress), proposing an updated workflow (TDD, with devs and QA working together), and using Docker to ensure consistency across environments (more live demo).

The code that she will demo can be found here
