What are the best tools for browser testing? Click to find out

Writing end-user tests helps us think critically about how our application functions in the real world, but browser testing is time-intensive. Vanessa will analyse two specific to Elixir: Wallaby & Hound by covering their history, identifying pitfalls, and anticipating their future. She'll look at similarities and differences and compare performance, concurrency, & asynchronicity. Vanessa will devise a strategy for choosing the best framework for you and how to use the time you save by giving back to the toolset.

UI Testing is Ruff; Hound Can Help

Whether you call it UI testing, End-to-End Testing, End-to-User Testing, or Acceptance Testing--it is often an intensely manual and time-consuming process.

Hound, an Elixir library, can carry some of the load through browser automation. Browser automations means that developers can automate their user interactions — clicks, fill inputs, file uploads, selecting options, radio buttons, etc.

Hound tests saved Vanessa days of manual end-user testing on a project, and she will be sharing this knowledge in her talk.
