When it comes to visuals, and explaining how things should look, it is very easy to make and discuss examples, but until now it was horribly difficult to cross the last mile and automate those checks. Layout and look and feel tests were historically too brittle, to difficult to maintain, and too slow to execute for quick iterative delivery cycles. However, recent improvements in cloud computing and browser capabilities make it possible to change the economics of the test automation pyramid. Gojko will share how trends such as approval testing, cloud functions and automated image analysis can help us automate acceptance/regression tests for visual look and feel in a visual language, rather than xUnit style code, and make such tests easy to write, understand, execute and maintain.
