I have a reason to celebrate: my “Cypress Tips & Tricks” YouTube playlist just reached a cool milestone - it has 250 short videos I have recorded about Cypress and writing tests. Hope a few more people subscribe - then the channel will have a cool 2k subscribers.
You can find a video by searching its title and description text on my cypress.tips/search page. If you have a suggestion for a new video to record, drop me a message via Twitter, Gitter, Discord, email, or certified mail.
After a January break, I am back on the speaking (virtual) circuit. My next presentation for QA Global Summit’22 can be watched live on Tuesday. I will talk about fast data generation and caching for E2E tests using the cypress-data-session plugin. Here is a little taste - I will make the slide deck public after the presentation.
Watch the https://slides.com/bahmutov or my Twitter feed for an announcement when it happens.
Later in February, I will give two presentations at ConFoo.ca: one about testing inside a large company, and another about visual testing. I will also teach a full-day workshop - there is still time to register.
Finally, I was invited to speak about testing at CityJS in Athens, Greece in May. The conference is looking for sponsors - so if your company wants to sponsor my trip (the flight and the hotel expenses should be under $3k total) and get a thankful placement in my talk (or a testing consultation with me), please, get in touch.
I have finally fixed scraping my Cypress blog posts and examples, so https://cypress.tips/search is fully working again. In particular, I want to showcase the blog posts about accessing the React application’s internals from Cypress tests - really giving your tests supervision into the app’s data and its actions.
I also recommend reading a blog post written by Murat Ozcan about testing emails using Cypress Mailosaur and cy-spok plugin. It is a good read.
