Tired of having users email you that your web application is broken? Using Cypress, the JavaScript End to End Testing Framework, as a quality control tool will help a lot in preventing those emails. Yet Cypress, good as it is, is not a silver bullet.

In this course you will learn how easy it is to get started with Cypress and create your first useful tests. We are going to start at the basics of Cypress. But we are not going to stay there. You will also learn how to make tests for data driven applications more reliable and even faster. You will also learn how to expand Cypress with extra functionality. We will do that both by adding additional plugins as well as writing our own extensions. We will look at how how to test applications using 3rd party authentications services. And you will learn how to include all that as part of your continuous integration build. Helping you prevent errors in code from ever deploying to production.

My name is Maurice de Beijer and I would love to teach you all about using Cypress. I have been using Cypress successfully in many of my projects.

Is this course for you? Never written automated end to end tests before?  No problem, we will start from the beginning. Already written some end to end tests with something like Selenium? Sweet, I will show you how to get up and running with Cypress in no time. Not sure if automated end to end testing is for you? I will show you how to get quick benefits for a minimal amount of work.
