The Science of Testing

Presented by: Thomas Haver
Time: Thursday 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Testing 101 for Devs

Presented by: Jenna Charlton
Time: Thursday 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM

Mission Impossible Prep: Testing with Cypress

Presented by: Bekah Hawrot Weigel
Time: Friday 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to ship reliable code. The mission is no different than the others as developers; it's complex, smart, and maybe even seemingly impossible. With no time to waste, you start writing your tests. And with that, you know your mission will succeed. With...
