Course Description

Cypress is a modern test framework for web test automation. It enables front-end developers and test automation engineers to write automated web tests in JavaScript, the main language used for developing websites. The use of JavaScript makes Cypress testing automation especially attractive to developers. 

Gleb Bahmutov, Ph.D., Cypress guru, walks us through Cypress version 10 with its enhanced end-to-end and component testing features. We’ll learn how to set up Cypress and debug web apps, using capabilities such as time travel and real-time reload. We’ll hear about features such as controlling the page clock, network stubbing, and screenshots of test failures, which make finding defects and debugging apps quick and simple.  Tapping into his vast experience, Gleb will also share with us some best practices for working with Cypress.







Gleb Bahmutov is a JavaScript ninja, image processing expert, and software quality fanatic. During the day Gleb is making the engineers more productive at Mercari US in his position as the Senior Director of Engineering. At night he is fighting software bugs and blogs about it at You can follow him and his work @bahmutov and find the slides from conference presentations at Gleb is a GitHub Star, Algolia Ambassador, CircleCI Ambassador, Microsoft MVP, and ex-Cypress Distinguished Engineer.
